Post-production or Offline Captioning – facilitated by Cindy Camp and Beth Case

This course is for administrators, disability services professionals, and instructors who want to learn how to make classrooms and online materials accessible through captioning.

The course will examine types of captions, standards for captions, captioning methods and softwares, as well as laws related to captioning and accessibility. We will discuss the pros and cons of outsourcing compared to captioning in-house. Participants will gain knowledge about the captioning process as well as be able to choose an appropriate option for their institution.

The anticipate time commitment for this six-week course is a minimum of 5 hours per week.
