If you have a few hours each week or month to help, you’re invited to join the Captioning Brigade and help instructors add closed captions to videos for students in their Canvas courses.
Videos that need to be captioned have been created or uploaded into Panopto by the course instructor. Panopto creates a rough transcription based on the audio track of the video. In order to be ADA compliant, videos created by captioning software must be reviewed for accuracy by a human so they provide an equitable learning experience for as many students as possible.
You will receive training on how to perform this service during a one-hour workshop once you join the Captioning Brigade as a volunteer. Contact Teaching and Learning with Technology at TLT@twu.edu to learn more.
