Remote Learning With DCMP Accessible Videos
Teachers and parents across the country are taking advantage of DCMP's Remote Learning resources. For educators who have at least one student who is deaf or blind and wish to implement tools for remote learning, DCMP can help ensure that educational videos are accessible for students learning at home.
- Teachers who use video conferencing services can play DCMP videos with captions or description on their PC and share the screen with students.
- Teachers can create Student Accounts through the DCMP dashboard and assign videos to students. Each student will have their own username and password. Learn how here.
- Parents and students can log in to DCMP from any home computer with Internet access or any tablet with a mobile data connection. Parents can create a new DCMP account for free, or use the Student Account created by the student’s teacher. Learn how to share Student Accounts.
- Each user can easily set the video accessibility settings to either captions or audio description via Browsing Preferences on the DCMP dashboard, or in the Language/Accessibility options found under the video player.
- Assigned videos will appear on each students’ DCMP dashboard when the student logs in to dcmp.org.
- Teachers with at least one student in class who is deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind can register for free membership and use DCMP's streaming library of over 8,000 videos for all class members.
Please share this information with teachers and parents who you feel may benefit from the use of accessible videos while teaching their students remotely. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
