Creating, Integrating, and Leveraging Accessibly-Compliant Video Assets in the Classroom

In the creation or modification of technologically savvy, robust, and enriching online courses, faculty must leverage a variety of supplemental content. As higher ed transitions from SD video assets that were once delivered on VHS, DVD, and over cable to the digital desktop in an HD world and beyond, faculty are challenged to either create or integrate accessibly-compliant video. Whether for student feedback, a lecture, or a supplemental video pertaining to the week’s lesson, leveraging and integrating compliant video assets is an ambitious task that presents specific technical challenges.

Video assets include live events, prerecorded lectures, library media, or supportive supplements that are captured, managed, and shared onsite by media platforms such as MediaCore or MediaSite, or hosted offsite at video-sharing websites like YouTube, Vimeo, or Google+. Regardless of where they are hosted, videos should be easily accessible by faculty and viewable to the end user—across operating systems, workstations, and mobile platforms—anywhere in the world.

If the goal of integrating compliant video into a learning management system (LMS) where online courses reside (such as ANGEL and Canvas) is met, positive and sustainable impact is guaranteed. In the transitional sense, form is replacing function as these LMS interfaces grow more media-friendly and robust. However, updates are expensive, too little, too late, or too innovative. Supplemental training on best practices and standards in this new environment can be met with failed efforts as technology moves forward and late adapters resist the challenge of change. Compliance can become ignored or overlooked.

This presentation will briefly discuss physical and financial costs associated with ADA compliance, potential work-arounds for still unmodified digital formats (peer mentoring) and the Universal Design concept.
