Transcript:

I’m Jonathan Finkelstein, and this is The Real Time Minute. Thanks for joining me. When conducting real-time online meetings, what do you do to ensure everyone feels included?

One thing you can do to reach everyone in your session is use real-time closed captioning. Subtitling the session ensures that those with hearing impairments aren’t left out.

There are several other benefits, too. Can you think of any?

Closed captioning can be helpful to visual learners and those with different learning styles. I also find that non-native speakers appreciate being able to follow along with the captions. As do those with technical problems. Finally, closed captioning leaves behind a useful artifact of the experience — a searchable written transcript.

Think about how you might use the written word to make your real-time sessions memorable for everyone. Until next time, I’ll see you on the Real Time Minute.

December 30th, 2009

#21 – Feeling Small

November 22nd, 2008

In this special Australian outback edition from one of nature’s wonderful places, Jonathan notes that participants in real-time online sessions can sometimes feel small because of the newness of the technology or constraints imposed by a facilitator. He suggests that those leading live online events can look for ways to make participants feel their own size so they are comfortable getting fully involved.
