[Spring Workshop 2023] Supporting and Increasing Accessibility in Video

Friday June 2, 1:30 – 2:15

  • Michael Sider is an Educational Media Producer at UBC Studios, University of British Columbia

Session Description

In some ways it’s never been easier to make video more accessible. At the same time there are new challenges, as we learn more about the variety of barriers that learners experience with media. Captions, ASL, descriptive video… as producers of educational media, navigating the landscape of accessibility in video can be overwhelming.

UBC Studios at University of British Columbia has been researching and deploying a wide range of solutions toward universal design in video, and supporting university faculty and staff in their use of these solutions through workshops and consultations. The solutions range from free and fast, to expensive and labour-intensive. Join Michael Sider, Producer at UBC Studios, as we explore together the barriers and opportunities in the work toward universal design in educational video.
