National Research Results: How & Why Do Students Use Closed Captioning?

Earlier this year, the Oregon State University Ecampus Research Unit conducted a nationwide research project on closed captioning in higher education. With over 2,500 student respondents, this is the largest study on the topic to date.

In this webinar, Dr. Katie Linder, the head researcher on the project, will present for the first time on the findings of the study. She will take a close look at how students use and perceive captioning and transcription at their institutions (beyond the need for accommodation).

This presentation will cover:

  • Data & results from the student study
  • Student awareness of the availability of captioning
  • Student use of captioning and transcription
  • How & why students who have not requested an accommodation for captioning use captions and transcripts
  • How captions & transcripts support learning
  • The perceived benefits of captioning & transcription on learning
  • Common captioning hindrances identified by students
  • Takeaways from the study
