Accessibility Strategies for Educational Online Video

Offered by the Online Learning Consortium

For many campuses, online video has become an essential part of teaching and learning. While online video has opened up the classroom to many more students, educational institutions have had to face legal, functional, and ethical pressures to provide accessible video accommodations to their students and staff.  Closed captions are also being demanded by ESL students who benefit from the ability to review course content at their own pace. More description available.


Patrick Wirth, Director of Media Services, has served as the Director of Media Services with the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Continuing Education department since February of 2011.

Haris Gunadi, Alternate Media Specialist, has worked in higher education accessibility for more than 10 years, first at Oregon State University and more recently at Portland Community College
