Core Curriculum and Required Courses
Invest, first, where you can have the largest impact. Start by investing in your core curriculum or required courses.
- Courses where the material is well-established and does not change often.
- Courses taken by most students at your school, and courses that are required for specific majors.
- Courses offered year-around or with multiple sections in a term/semester.
Closed-Captioning Service Tips
I’m an educator, so I agree that:
- adding your own closed-captioning is time consuming; and
- paying for a closed-captioning service is expensive.
To get the most out of your investment, we encourage you to create lectures/videos that “stand the test of time”. If you’re paying for captions, caption a video that is resuable. Follow these tips for creating “Lectures with Long-term Use“.
