NC State University has established a Captioning Grant to assist faculty in creating accessible videos.
This grant provides funds for faculty to obtain captions for instructional videos used in their online, blended and face-to-face courses. In addition to providing content to people with hearing impairments, captions create a learning environment that supports Universal Design for Learning.
Faculty members may apply for funding to caption videos:
- when a student with a disability requiring an accommodation for captioning registers in a course that contains video, or
- when proactively captioning videos to enhance the learning environment for all students.
Faculty using their own videos as a central part of their pedagogy are highly encouraged to apply for the grant.
To apply for the grant, complete the Captioning Grant Application Form. Applications to meet the needs of a student requiring this accommodation will be processed immediately. Those for proactive captioning will be processed on March 31 for summer, June 30 for fall and Oct. 31 for spring courses.
