  5. 5. Dream vs. Reality ‣ Dream: – Instructor(s) submits list of video requests with due dates and sources – Instructors contacted our department in advance to get videos captioned. 5
  6. 6. Reality ‣ Reality: – Instructors have syllabus ready by the first day of class. – 50% Instructors do not know what videos that will be shown in the class. 6
  7. 7. PCC and Instructors ‣ Common Misconceptions: – Too much additional steps for instructors to get videos captioned – Disability Services cannot handle last minute requests – It is difficult to show caption videos on multimedia console in the classroom 7
  8. 8. PCC Outreach to Instructors ‣ We realize the importance of working collaboratively with instructors and notifying instructors in advance ‣ In same cases, we called instructor to explain the process of captioning videos, which is: – the only thing they have to do actually send us list of videos that will be shown in classroom) – Instructor will get a link to show video within 1 business days after we get the video and subtitle will show within 3 business days or less. 8
  9. 9. PCC Outreach to Instructors, Cont. ‣ Assure instructor that last minute videos can be done (typically shorts videos less than 10 minutes) – Disability Services handles short and last minute videos in house with turn around of 3 - 5 minutes for each 1 minute of the video – We always encourage instructors, unless the even just happened, we would like the instructor to notify us within 1 business days 9
  10. 10. PCC Outreach to Instructors, Cont. ‣ Result: – Instructor realizes the process is not burdensome and actually like how we store instructor video in one place – Instructor wants us to caption all the videos they have (even though there is no video captioning request) • Timeline is not guarantee, accommodation is always a priority • In order for us to caption the video, the videos must be durable (will be used for multiple terms) 10
  11. 11. Choosing Third Party ‣ Challenges PCC were facing: – Limited staff resources – Turn-around time for long last minute videos – Streamlining processes from getting videos to sending instructor link 11
  12. 12. Choosing Third Party (cont.) ‣ Benefits – Able to put more resources to contact instructors – Option to do in-house captioning is available for short videos or last minutes videos – We were able to request specialize player to include interactive transcripts. 12
  13. 13. PCC Work Flow ‣ Student submits captioning video/interpreting/transcribing video requests. ‣ Instructor(s) are contacted before the term starts (and during). ‣ Accessibility Aides will find whether videos were already captioned or if transcripts can be found online. 13
  14. 14. PCC Work Flow (cont.) ‣ If it is captioned, our aide provide an instruction on how to turn on CC function in multimedia console or use VLC Player. ‣ If it is available for purchase, we will purchase the video instead. ‣ If it is an audio only media, we will provide transcript to student directly. 14
  15. 15. PCC Work Flow (cont.) 15
  16. 16. PCC Work Flow (cont.) ‣ Upload video to Kaltura. ‣ Send instructor a link to video ahead while closed captioning being processed. ‣ Remind instructor that the video link will only available on limited time basis because of copyright. 16
