Hi Yan,

At UNT, we are using Zoom for videoconferencing. The "record to the cloud" option in Zoom allows the recording (screencast) to be automatically transcribed with the link to recording and transcription sent to instructor within a couple hours after the end of online meeting. I have been using that option successfully in my cataloging and metadata courses, and it can be used any time: either during the actual class meeting, or when there is no class meeting.

Hope this helps,

Hi, Yan,

I teach face-to-face, but I do use online videos to "flip the classroom."
When I needed captioning for a student that was hearing impaired, our
Office of Accessibility Services (formerly, the Offices of Disability
Services) created the captions for the video lectures. I haven't had to do
it myself.
