[teknoids] Closed Captioning of Academic Recordings

Hi Matt,

We have two recording systems (Panopto and Kaltura) and both provide computer-generated captions and allow human editing. I sometimes edit the captions of videos made for pre-class work but don’t for recordings of classes. The computer-generated captions are pretty good but every once in a while it gets a word wrong that is a key part of the video and may be a new term for the students. I can’t remember now what the term was but there was a video I made that used a term 1Ls were unlikely to understand in context. Every single time the captioning put the wrong word, I’m sure because of my speech. I was able to go through and edit pretty quickly.

Hi all,

Other than for DSS obligations, do any schools provide closed captioning of academic recordings to their students?

If so, are you using Human or Computer-Generated captions?

I would appreciate any insight you all have,
