MNX104 Improve Learning Outcomes with Video Caption and Transcripts
1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, October 25
Video is an integral part of online learning and training strategies. But could you be getting more out of your video content? Without captions, video is inherently inaccessible to deaf and hard-of-hearing users. But are all of your learners missing out if you don’t have captions on your videos? Can learning be improved when captions and searchable video are introduced into the classroom?
This session will share results from a study revealing how 98.6 percent of students found captioning helpful. You will explore how captions improve learning for all students, and you’ll look at how to create a fully searchable online video portal to further improve your learners’ experience. Finally, you’ll learn why captions are useful as a learning aid to improve comprehension, accuracy, engagement, and retention.
In this session, you will learn:
- How students use captions and transcripts to improve comprehension and retention
- Why captions are critical for making video-based learning accessible to all learners
- How captions help different subgroups of learners (ESL, adult learners, and more)
- How to build a searchable video library to make your courses more engaging and interactive
Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.
