Here are a couple of timely webinars presented by 3Play Media. One talk is
presented by ATHEN member Korey Singleton and the second from a professor
here at the CU-Boulder campus. They both look very interesting.

*March 19, 2PM ET - The Long Road from Reactive to Proactive: Developing an
Accessibility Strategy
Implementing accessibility policies in higher education is no easy task.
For many, it is easy to get caught in a cycle of reactive accommodation
where larger accessibility policies are never implemented. Korey Singleton,
the Assistive Technology Initiative Manager at George Mason University,
will walk you through their two-year process of moving from reactive
solutions to proactive accessibility policies.

*April 2, 2PM ET - **How Copyright and Fair Use Impact Third Party
Captioning for Educational Video
One of the great challenges of using videos that you don’t own is that
accessibility laws require most educational institutions (as well as
government programs and other industries) to provide closed captions for
video content. This is where copyright law can interfere. Blake Reid, an
Assistant Clinical Professor in Technology Policy and Telecom Law at
Colorado Law, will walk you through the conflict between copyrightlaw and
captioning law, focusing on the legality of captioning videos that you
don’t own.
