Today there are several formats you can choose from to deliver your web-based video, and there are even more tools available to create digital video with ease and at low cost. Learn about institutional to individual solutions and workflows, captioning support in popular desktop applications like Camtasia and Captivate, and free or inexpensive tools available on the web. Captioning considerations such as formatting, pedagogy, instructional design, and optimizing workflows will be covered as well.
