While Collaborate allows for live captioning of a session, this tool is challenging to use and facilitate. We recommend you record your sessions and upload those recordings into Kaltura where they will be auto-closed captioned.
In addition, because this is a cloud-based tool, bandwidth and basic access to the technology needed by students may be challenging for them. We therefore recommend you confidentially poll your students (e.g. by email) to find out what access to devices and internet they may have.
