This project requires that you have (or borrow) a device for recording video, such as a webcam, phone, or tablet. Videos will be first uploaded to YouTube so that you can self-caption them. After you have captioned your video you will submit it to GoReact for review and feedback. GoReact allows us to provide feedback that is time-coded to specific points in a videoshare your YouTube URL in the myCourses Discussion area. This process takes time, so do not procrastinate until the last minute when uploading and captioning your speech videos.

What will happen next?

You'll notice that when you play your linked videos in GoReact, the YouTube captions will not appear. To make the captions appear, RIT Teaching & Learning Services Media Services and Access Services must work together to convert your YouTube video with closed captions into an open captioned video (one with the captions burned into the video). Within 24 hours of linking your YouTube video into GoReact, the linked file will play with open captions and will be ready for peer and instructor review. Refer to myCourses for peer review instructions.

Note: If you use ASL, your video will be voiced over and captioned.
