Video accessibility ensures that all students can equally access recorded lectures and instructional videos. Whether you wish to incorporate Universal Design Learning (UDL) into your online teaching or provide your students with diverse viewing options to keep them engaged, this workshop walks you through the very first steps. No prior knowledge of UDL or video accessibility is needed. Instructors will help participants identify why accessible video is so important and will go over essential strategies to create closed captions, generate searchable transcripts, and optimize video to make it more accessible. Plus, find out how to connect with learning accessibility expertise across JMU for enacting responsive and adaptive pedagogies across your curriculum and instruction.


Participants will

  • Explain the importance of closed captioning in your videos
  • Identify the difference between open captioning, closed captioning, and subtitles
  • Generate closed-caption to video
