Captioning: Knowing How

This self-paced course is intended to increase understanding and awareness of multimedia accessibility and how to create your own captioned files.

Because accessibility work is a responsibility shared among campus citizens, learning skills such as captioning videos provides a critical foundation not only for faculty and staff, yet for everyone.

This course is set up in a “modules” format, delivering sections one at a time. Each module will contain subject content, video, assignments, and/or quizzes.

This course is a free course available via the Canvas LMS system.
