According to a recent SFSU research, students who leverage captioned video achieve a full GPA increase over students who do not utilize captions. Join this webinar to learn how video captioning affects student academic performance. Many resources go into making high quality accessible educational content available in the academic environment, and we will focus our discussion on how to make the most of our captioned content – achieve full government compliance while extending your video shelf life, making your content easily searchable, and significantly improving SEO.
