The Walker Center provides training and documentation for creating editing, and captioning video course content. It is the instructor's responsibility to verify the accuracy of the captions, and to edit those captions as needed.
YouTube is a video-sharing website owned by Google. Users can upload videos (lecture capture, tutorials, assignments, etc.) to the site and share them with as many or as few users as they choose. Faculty and staff are encouraged to use YouTube as an option to store video content and share with students.
YouTube can automatically generate closed captions for videos uploaded to the site, but may require editing.
Videos uploaded to YouTube can be viewed on smartphones and tablets, as well as laptops and desktop computers.
Faculty, staff and students can create a YouTube channel for free, with unlimited storage using their Mocs+ Gmail account.
Instructions on how to setup a YouTube channel, upload content, and create captions:
UTC owns Camtasia licenses for faculty use to create accessible instructional video content that aligns with teaching and learning best practices.
Camtasia is a software suite for the creation and editing of videos. Camtasia is used as an enhanced screen capture tool, allowing for video/audio capture, visual additions and closed-captioning creation. Videos created using Camtasia can be saved in a variety of formats and uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo or Mediasite.
UTC’s Camtasia licenses are managed by Information Technology. These licenses and are made available through SCCM/Casper software delivery to those faculty who have completed UTC’s Camtasia training .
The Walker Center for Teaching and Learning (WCTL) manages Camtasia faculty training. Faculty training involves completion of both a Camtasia online module and a 30-minute one-on-one session with a WCTL staff person.
