Do You See What I’m Saying?

A session at HighEdWeb New England

Monday 18th March, 2013

2:45pm to 2:55pm (EST)

Higher ed has embraced web video as an important and effective way to engage and inform our audiences. Whether you’re undertaking a marketing campaign, distance-learning courseware, or a special event, video can send a powerful message — if your audience can hear and understand it.

We’ll talk about why captioning your videos is important from an ethical and legal standpoint, why it’s important for your reputation (did you know that YouTube automatically translates closed captions into dozens of languages?), but we’ll spend most of our time looking at a process that makes it easy and cheap (or free!) for even non-technical folks to create high-quality video closed captions.
