Abstract

Let's look at some data! We're really excited to present on the results from two national studies on closed captioning, conducted by Oregon State University's Ecampus Research Unit. These studies are the first of their scale in higher education, and the results provide value insight into the state of closed captioning at the institutional level. The first study looks at how students across sub-groups (in addition to those with accommodations requests) are using closed captions and transcripts to improve their learning experience, as well as common hindrances reported by the students surveyed. The second study covers institutional solutions for complying with closed captioning regulations. Together, these surveys provide a clearer picture of the benefits, solutions, complications, and direction of closed captioning in higher education.
