Use 3C Media and DECT to Get Free Captioning
3C Media Solutions is a free service for Mt. SAC faculty, managers, and staff who wish to store and
stream video... It is like a YouTube.com for the California Community Colleges, and
can be used as a secure place for video storage. It also offers the useful option
to request free captions! The free 3C Media subscription and the captioning service
are funded by the Chancellors Office of the California Community Colleges. Although
accounts are free, you must register for your 3C Media account using your Mt. SAC email address. 3C Media will only sync with Canvas if you use the exact same email address to set up 3C Media as the one that is listed in your Canvas account.
Your 3C Media video storage area can only be used for video that you have created,
and to store YouTube.com links you wish to use. A benefit of using 3C Media is that it is integrated into our learning management
system, Canvas. Once you've set up your account and added videos, you can access them
directly in 3C Media or directly in Canvas! Another handy feature is the ability to
easily save your ConferZoom conferences in 3C Media.
Captions are also easy to request with the click of a button and can be requested
from within Canvas or directly in 3C Media. These are paid by a Distance Education block grant provided through the Community
College system, so they are a free service to Mt. SAC! Even though the grant is named
Distance Education, you can request any video you plan to share in a digital format
for instruction. You provide your name, the title of the video, the length of the video and the course where you
will use it, and that's it! Turnaround time is typically under 1 week.
