Closed Captioning: A Coordinated state-wide initiativeMoreau, Joseph (2005-03)This Microsoft Powerpoint presentation (of 15 slides) was presented at the Learning Resources Association of the California Community Colleges (LRACCC) North-South Meetings on February 15 at San Francisco City College and on March 11 at Coastline Community College. Joseph Moreau is Dean of Academic Information Serivces at MiraCosta College, Oceanside. Moreau presents the current situation with media captioning: State & Federal law require media used in public education to be captioned. But the problem is that many of the California Community College (CCC) Libraries hold a significant number of uncaptioned titles. With LRACCC's leadership Moreau is spearheading an initiative to start a state-wide program that will provide captioning in an easier and more economical manner for the CCCs. The presentation outlines all aspects of the proposal that have been identified thus far (who, what, when in broad strokes) and readers are encouraged to send feedback.
