3Play Media will be exhibiting its captions and interactive transcripts at the Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning in Madison, Wisconsin this week.  This year’s conference, entitled “Innovation in Distance Education” will be held at Monona Terrace at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, August 4-6.  In addition to the exhibit hall, workshops, demonstrations, information sessions, and panel discussions will be taking place throughout the three day conference.  Attending will be representatives from higher education institutions, PK-12 education, business and industry, government, and healthcare.

Educational technology has rapidly evolved over the last several years to include online learning modules, webcasts of live and recorded lectures, and course management tools.  For example, a single university course for a semester can produce 30-40 hours of video content; multiply that over many courses, semesters, and institutions, and there is a real need for the accessibility and navigation benefits that transcription and captioning provide for web video.  With the recent passing of the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (H.R. 3101) in the US House of Representatives, we expect transcription and captioning services for web video to be of particular interest at the conference.

Come visit us at booth 608!
