Video comparison guide: live, recording, sharing, caption options 

 

Please also refer to this guide from the Teaching Assistants' Training Program:

 

Methods to conduct a live synchronous session / meeting:

 

1) Zoom

 

2) MS Teams "Meetings"

 

3) Bb Collaborate

 

Video comparison guides:

 


Methods for live captions:

1) Traditional manual creation of captions. 

  • This requires adding a person who is a live transcriber to your live session.

2) Powerpoint Live Presentations

  • OneDrive/Office 365 “Powerpoint Live Presentations” mode. 
  • The live captions will only appear when showing your powerpoint slides.  Once you change to different content like video chatting in Zoom, showing a website, etc. the captions will no longer be shown.

3) MS Teams "Meetings"

 

 

Methods to caption recorded videos:

1) Traditional manual creation of captions. 

  • This requires a person who will manually transcribe the video and manually create the caption file

2) MS Stream

  • Microsoft Stream (part of Office 365) can create automated captions of recorded videos.  The automated transcription is not 100% accurate, errors can be manually corrected. The sharing options are not very flexible in MS Stream, so we suggest exporting the caption file and using the UofT Libraries' MyMedia service to share the video with captions.

 

Please consult our guide for full instructions to caption recorded videos:

 

 

Methods to record video:

1) Local recording with Zoom

  • You have the ability to record your screen, camera and audio.
  • Create a meeting of 1 (your "personal" zoom room for example), and make a local recording to your computer.
