Captioning Grant Funding
Funding is available for captioning Distance Education material for all California Community Colleges through Automatic Sync.
The DECT grant covers distance education apportionment generating courses only.
To submit an application follow these steps:
When you receive your captioned materials, deploy in your class.
Legal Copies and Uses
If you use the Edustream media solution to store your files, you must still comply with copyright law and Fair Use principles. You are personally responsible for any content you upload and it is your responsibility, separate from that of Foothill College, to be certain your materials are legal to copy and use.
Accessibility and ADA 508 Compliance
Please remember that you are required to provide accessible formats for all online content, whether or not students with disabilities are actually registered for your course. For video that means captioning.
Grant funds are available for captioning. -Application process-
