1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Learning and Innovation Center (1st floor of Harrison Libraries)

In this hands-on session, participants will learn how to use automatic video captioning in Ensemble (new!), how to edit captions, how to create alternative text (alt tags) for images in Blackboard, as well as some tips and tricks for making documents uploaded to Blackboard accessible. FCLD will also demonstrate Ally, a new accessibility tool coming soon, which uses a wizard tool to assist faculty in automatically making documents accessible, as well as giving just-in-time tips to instructors. Creating accessible courses is required by law and is best practice for all instruction. This session is open to all faculty, but will be especially helpful for online, flipping or hybrid instructors.

Faculty interested in attending should register by emailing fcld@hartford.edu or calling (860) 768-4661.
