Videos used in teaching need to be accessible, meaning that the information conveyed in them should not rely upon the viewer’s ability to only see or hear. The videos can be made accessible by conveying the information in more than one medium: by ensuring that spoken content is represented visually using e.g. subtitles. On this course, we will discuss how to take accessibility in consideration in videos, from the planning stage to finished clip.
