Description

The technology used for teaching is an expanding, integrated set of electronic resources. In each curricular area, there is potential to create a wealth of online educational materials, but often that material creation is time-intensive. For example, producing quality video may take 50-100 hours of work to create one hour of finished video- even more if captions are created. Recently, we worked with students who have special needs. The students required materials we did not have, and did not have the time or funds to order. So, we created rapid processes for educational material creation that could ultimately be used for all students. The two processes we worked on were: creating 3D renderings of graphed data, and streamlining a process to create video transcriptions. Our 3D graphing method relies on color shades to process graph components into different heights which can then be printed. Using this color method, we were able to decrease our creation and processing time from 4 hours to only about half an hour. For the video transcription/captions, we created the video normally, then used a crossover cable and free speech-to-text tool to automatically transcribe the voice in the video. Limited editing for elements such as punctuation and word correction was required following the automatic transcription. This editing process took a fraction of the time normally required to transcribe previous videos.
