DE Tip of the Week

Adding subtitles or closed captions to videos you have created for your students, such as tutorials or recorded lectures can be a helpful way to meet the needs of your learners. It can be time intensive to add captions to a class lecture, but YouTube has a tool to make the process a little easier. YouTube can use its own speech recognition software to create captions for your videos. The captions are not always accurate and often need proofreading and correction, but it can be a good start. If you are interested in using YouTube’s automatic captioning system, visit: Our YouTube workshop will elaborate on this feature as well. You can find more information about workshops and read other tech tips by visiting or emailing
