Do you use online video in your courses? If so, this webinar is for you. Closed captions not only help make your video accessible to those with disabilities but they also can improve attention, focus, and comprehension for all students, adding value and improving the quality of your course materials.

At 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, join Automatic Sync Technologies (AST), a university-approved vendor for transcription and captioning services, for a 30-minute webinar via Zoom. AST has been providing transcription and captioning services to higher education across the country for over 14 years and offers integration with Mediasite to provide a seamless workflow.

AST also delivers a number of other related accessibility services ranging from real-time CART, to audio description, to translation. During the webinar, K-State account rep Kara Stark will highlight how to get an AST CaptionSync account, how to utilize the master service agreement, and how to use the various services AST offers. An opportunity for Q&A will follow.
