Making Course Content Accessible: Audio and Video (Webinar)

The University at Buffalo is committed to providing students with disabilities access to all the university's resources and programs and this includes the accessibility of course materials in all classes, including face-to-face, online and hybrid. The expansion of UB's online presence makes this focus even more critical.

This webinar highlights efforts at Buffalo State to promote accessibility of course materials and will focus on best practices for creating and providing transcripts or closed captions for audio and video that are used within your courses. Buffalo State's campus procedures, resources and expectations will also be shared.
