New Closed Caption Features added to NCLOR

There are currently thousands of videos, stored in or linked, in the NCLOR that include closed captions. In an effort to make the NCLOR more accessible and help NCCCS faculty find ADA compliant resources, a filter to view only videos that have closed captions has been added to advance searches.

On the NCCCS advance searches, a selection to only return videos or interactive resources that include closed captions has been added to the option set. (shown in image 1 below)

Reminders of the need to use closed captions when contributing video resources to the NCLOR have also been added to the each of the NCCCS collection wizards. The reminder is configured to display when the user selects “Video” from the learning resource type option. (shown in image 2 below)
