Hi folks,

As most of us know, captioning videos can be one of the biggest challenges when adding media to our online course. Captions are required for any video content that we add to ensure that our courses are ADA compliant.

However, video content can be extremely valuable to student learning experiences, and the task of having to create captions shouldn't discourage us from creating multimedia for our courses.

YouTube has one of the best auto-captioning tools, which now includes the ability to edit the auto-captioning mistakes right in YouTube, making it one of the fastest and easiest captioning solutions. This new video on our Technology Resources Training and Professional Development page gives you a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the tool to caption your videos:

Hopefully this will prove to be a valuable resource for you when creating videos for your courses!
