Caption Assistance Program: CAP


• Collaboration between Tech Services and CLIC: 1-time funding to support captioning efforts now through May 2021

• Student workers hired & trained to create & edit captions for instructor-created content within Canvas, on-demand for instructors


• Fill out the request form on this page.

• A student worker will be assigned & communicate with you on next steps

• Your video is captioned within 1-3 days (depending on length, number of videos, etc.)


• Increased ease and accessibility for students’ watching needs

• To reduce instructors’ workload in preparing online course materials


Will the student worker need access to my course?
No – students will have access only to the videos you identify within Canvas MyMedia

Do I have to use Canvas MyMedia?
Yes – although you can make the video with any tool, it will need to be uploaded to Canvas MyMedia for captioning and editing in this process.

Thank you to the many hands who made this project possible on short notice, including Student Employment, Tech Services, our CLIC/Library staff & student workers, and instructors Lorena Rios Mendoza and Nate LaCoursiere for being our test-users of this service.
