Hello All:

Here are another couple of upcoming and interesting webinars hosted by
3Play Media. The first talk is presented by a professor here at the
CU-Boulder campus. The second talk includes ATHEN members Terrill Thompson
and Greg Kraus (moderator) among other panelists.

*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.

*April 22, 2PM ET - **The Future of Video Player Accessibility
In this webinar, developers from YouTube/Google, JW Player, Video.js, and
University of Washington will come together to discuss video player
accessibility. Taking a look at their different players, we will discuss
the current capabilities, known shortcomings, and plans for future
development. This webinar will provide a forum for major developers to take
a top-level look at the future potential of video player accessibility.
