Using Blackboard for Hearing Impairment
The Top 2 things you need to know about using Blackboard regarding hearing impairment:
- The new Record from Webcam (Video Everywhere) feature is embedded in the content editor and allows the student to create video messages or submissions anywhere they have access to the content editor. That means that if you have a student or other peers in the class who signs, they can record and view video conversations in a discussion forum, post a video blog, or even submit a video presentation to the instructor for assignments
- While the Blackboard Learn product does not auto-caption media files it does provide full support for captions in all media types that can be uploaded or viewed within your course content. With some forethought, even videos recorded with the Record from Webcam feature can be captioned.
