Below is informative exchange on how to subtitle course capture (screencast):
Are we talking Camtasia Studio or Relay?
Relay no longer publishes to Flash – it was replaced with MP4 and a “Smart Player” – and the subtitling is stored in an XML file that is dynamically read by the Smart Player.
I can confirm that Studio burns the captions into an MP4, as Steve points out.

Camtasia captioning is burn-in, as far as I know (at least in Mac 2). So I don’t think Flash is an aspect of it unless that is the format you are exporting it as.

Subject: Re: [BLEND-ONLINE] Subtitling Screencasts
Both ScreenFlow (Mac-only) and Camtasia (Mac/Win) support subtitling. Both are excellent screencast applications but I prefer ScreenFlow because it creates MPEG-4 files whereas Camtasia requires Flash for subtitles and that pretty much rules out mobile.
If these screencastsare made with some other, less expensive apps, I suggest using free, open source apps. There are many but I prefer Jubler for creating subtitles and Subler for installing them in MPEG-4 files. These are Mac apps.
I’ve recently come across CapScribe which is free to education and plan to look it over carefully. It looks very promising: http://www.inclusivemedia.ca/services/capscribe.shtml This is also Mac-only.

In creating accessible online and blended courses, one of the challenges we
are dealing with is making sure faculty created videos (narrated
PowerPoints, screencasts, etc.) are accessible. I would love to hear how
others are handling this. Do you recommend/require that these videos be
closed captioned? If so, who is responsible for creating the closed
captions? Do you have staff on campus that do this or is it the faculty
member’s responsibility? Or do you use a service? Can you recommend any
software that helps someone easily create closed captions or a service that
can provide this?

“MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?” Event Summarized in Series of Six Hangingtogether Blog Posts
The 18-19 March “MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?” event featured thoughtful and provocative presentations about how libraries are already getting involved with MOOCs, and engaged attendees in discussions about strategic opportunities and challenges going forward. OCLC Research Senior Program Officer Merrilee Proffitt helped to organize the event and has posted a series of six blog posts on the OCLC Research blog, Hangingtogether, that recap presentation highlights and summarize its outcomes.
These blog posts include:
- MOOCs and Libraries: Introduction;
- MOOCs and Libraries: Copyright, Licensing, Open Access
- MOOCs and Libraries: Production and Pedagogy
- MOOCs and Libraries: New Opportunities for Librarians
- MOOCs and Libraries: Who Are the Masses? A View of the Audience
- MOOCs and Libraries: Next Steps?
In addition, a MOOCs and Libraries video playlist that comprises 11 videos of the event sessions is available on the MOOCs and Libraries event page, and on the OCLC Research YouTube Channel. Links to the presenters’ slides, the next steps document (.pdf: 124K/1 pp.), the MOOCs online poll responses (.pdf: 67K/2 pp.), and the #mooclib archived tweets pdf: 639K/32 pp.) from this event are also available on the MOOCs and Libraries event page.

You are invited to participate in the “First Annual SCSU Technology in Teaching and Learning Summer Institute” co-sponsored by the Center for Continuing Studies, InfoMedia Services and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
When? Monday, May 13 – Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Where? Miller Center
Space is limited to 75 participants. Registration is required and can be completed at this link: http://www.eventbrite.com/org/3606333855
The Institute program is available here: http://web.stcloudstate.edu/informedia/cetl/tech_institute_schedule.docx
Participants are eligible for incentive awards to support their teaching with technology. Please see the attachment, “participant incentives.”
The goal of the SCSU Technology in Teaching and Learning Summer Institute and its follow-up sessions is to provide high quality and effective pedagogical strategies, skills and discussions around the use of technology for teaching and learning in online, face-to-face and blended courses. This Institute is part of our on-going varied and collaborative efforts to foster a professional peer learning climate around teaching and learning with technology.
Participants who attend all sessions on both days including the follow-ups and complete all evaluations will have the opportunity to use their self-assessment of current skills and knowledge of technology and select sessions in order to:
• Acquire basic and advanced skills in using the current Learning Management System, i.e. D2L
• Distinguish the appropriate use of pedagogical strategies with technology in online, face-to-face and blended settings
• Explore opportunities to improve student learning through application of e-conferencing tools (e.g. Adobe Connect), and Web 2.0 tools such as social media, etc.
• Meet and interact with faculty and staff experts and mentors and learn the processes by which they can get additional and on-going support for each of the above areas.
Please register no later than Wednesday May 8.
“Full-time faculty and full-time professional staff with teaching responsibilities who participate in both days of the “Summer Institute” and complete the evaluations will be rewarded with a $300 coupon for a one-time purchase of material that directly supports teaching with technology at the SCSU Computer Store in the Miller Center. Faculty who participate in one of the two days will receive a $150 coupon for the same purpose. Coupons are not transferable.
Please remember that the items purchased remain the property of SCSU but may be used by the purchaser to support their teaching and related academic activities.
Upon completion of the “Summer Institute” participants will be contacted by the SCSU Online Office to verify level of participation in the institute and verify eligibility for funds. These funds must be spent by June 15, 2013.”
