final presentation question (ADA)

Based on a question by a student class regarding the final presentation.
Per syllabus, the final presentation is to be delivered either on #FacebookLive and/or #AdobeConnect. Two of the platforms, all students in class have access to.
The concern of the question is regarding students with #disabilities; in this case #hearingissues.
Considering the oppulance of information on #SocialMedia and your increasing weariness, as expressed several weeks ago, I will NOT be able to accommodate special session on these issues, although module 12 (Copyright) and module 13 (privacy) can be fitting places and times to focus on #ADA (#AmericanwithDisabilityAct) and technological accommodations.
As you have noticed, I am using this Facebook group to expose you to additional important trends, not reflected in the short 15 weekly modules for the semester – in that sense, you have directions to explore and educate yourself.
Thus, please consider this thread as:
– an educational one: learn to resolve ADA issues
– pragmatic one: learn to upload #closedcaptions in #YouTube.
1. YouTube
#YouTube, after FB and #Twitter is the most popular #socialmediatool. Everyone can create an account in YouTube and upload a video. You can literally turn every presentation (e.g. PowerPoint) into a video clip to be uploaded in YouTube.
Once you have the video uploaded in YouTube, you can also upload closed captions to your presentation (YouTube video).
Here directions on the closed captioning in YouTube.
2. For any other presentation tool, you may be using:
PowerPoint, Prezi, Slideshare, etc. (here is a list of tools:…/08/closed-captions-for-video/)
you can transcribe your presentation and share the transcription in the chat window of Adobe Connect and/or in Facebook.

Bottom-line: pls practice an ADA friendly online presentation: consider parallel to your oral presentation a written transcript.
Also, monitor your chat window for written questions coming from students and be ready to respond in a written (versus oral) format.

Again, please use this thread for further suggestion and comments to shape and improve our final presentation.
