NCPA #edtech Briefing: October 13, 2020

Today we covered the following:

  1. Student Engagement – Michael Frels
  2. Zoom Recordings –Lisa Hughes
  3. Open House Notes– Lisa Hughes

**Sidenote – I turned on the captions when Michael was presenting, but it didn’t reflect in the recording.  I was able to see them on my screen when he was presenting.

 

If you would like to enable captions in Zoom see below.

  1. Go to your account settings in Zoom — (In Meeting – Advanced) to enable Closed Captioning
  2. Create a meeting and launch the Zoom App.  You will see an option for “Live Transcript CC” on your tool bar.

 

3.  Click the button and “Enable Auto-Transcription”
