Video is revolutionizing how we learn. Institutions face new challenges complying with accessibility regulations. Learn industry best practices for providing an accessible online learning experience.

Extended Abstract

Universities and colleges are leveraging video to transform the way students learn, communicate and collaborate. As the amount of educational video content grows, so do the challenges that institutions face in complying with accessibility guidelines and regulations.

Most institutions of higher education are required by law to provide closed captions to students who are deaf or hard of hearing. While the need for equal access to education is increasing, there is no easy solution or single workflow that allows universities to address this growing need.

Learn about industry best practices to provide an accessible online learning experience.
