Subtitles and Closed Captions

Whether and how to use subtitles can vary depending on several factors:

  • instructional goals
  • students' language level
  • accessibility
  • length of media
  • degree of analysis

We cannot guarantee that we'll be able to provide the subtitles you prefer, but we will always attempt to provide your preference for: English subtitles; target-language subtitles/captions; or no subtitles.

If you want subtitles, but there are none available for the film (or clip) you wish to use, we could help you incorporate a subtitling assignment into your course, or hold an LRC event to assist in reaching this goal. This requires some lead time and planning, but we would love to explore options with you.
