From: Prof Norm Coombs

Still time to register for Dec. 3 and arrange payments later . . .
New EASI online course: Making Multimedia Accessible
You don't have to know how to encode audio or video
to take part in the Accessible Internet Multimedia
Production Course. Only one piece of free software is
required. All audio, video and transcriptions needed for
the course will be downloadable from the Internet or can be sent on a CD ROM.
The advantage to being able to take the course in this
way is that you can try the three basic media formats
dicussed: RealMedia, QuickTime and WindowsMedia before
making a decision on what media format you would like
to support.

Are you using multimedia on the Internet? Do you want to use multimedia in
your courses? Do you have faculty wanting to use multimedia but you don't
know how to make it fully accessible?
EASI's new online workshop, Accessible Internet Multimedia Production, is
for you!
This month-long course starts Dec. 3, taught entirely online. You can take
it from anywhere anytime: http://easi.cc/workshop.htm
Educational and other information providers on the Internet are
increasingly using multimedia as a means to disseminate information.
Multimedia poses special problems but also unique opportunities for
reaching people with disabilities. Providing transcriptions, captions and
descriptive video synchronized with the media is a real challenge. This
course will give step-by-step instruction in how and when to provide
transcriptions and synchronized captions. This course will be good for web
masters, information technologists, instructional technologists, disabled
student staff, librarians and more. (This course is optional for the
EASI/USM certificate in Accessible Information Technology. You can also
earn 3 CEU's for the course.)
