Instructors can make videos of their PowerPoint presentations, including their own voiceover, and then deliver them to students via Webcourses or another website. In addition to PowerPoint, you'll need to download free software called iSpring Free.
Instructors are required to make course materials accessible in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. For videos, this includes captions. While iSpring Free does not offer captioning as part of its software, it is recommended to create a transcript of the video BEFORE creating the recording.
Click here to watch the process of converting a file (using AuthorPoint Lite), and then uploading it to Webcourses. The process is similar for iSpring Free.
Course materials are required to be ADA compliant. Instructors may wish to wish to type captions into the "notes" field of each slide and provide the entire .ppt file (with no audio) if a request for accommodation is made. An alternative could be to add captions to the finished video. This can be accomplished by importing the video file into Camtasia7 (or a higher version) and instruct the software to transcribe the audio. The captions will be created automatically, and may need to be adjusted for accuracy. Contact the Student Accessibility Services office for additional information.

Face-to-face or online interaction with my students...

I was inspired by previous UCF faculty that included Dr. Martin Wanielista (Environmental Engineering & Dean), Dr. Gary Whitehouse (Dean & Provost), and Dr. Christian Bauer (Industrial Engineering). I chose to pursue my PhD, but did...
