How do I turn on closed-captioning or subtitles for my video lesson?

Closed-captioning is available for any video that has been originally captioned by the service the video has been pulled from.

Enabling closed-captioning

When you assign your video lesson, you can select the option to "Turn on CCs" to enable closed-captioning.

When a student watches a video lesson which has closed-captioning, a “CC” button will appear. Click the button to enable/disable the subtitles.

Enabling subtitles in different languages

Some videos may be subtitled in different languages. To go through the options, click the “CC” button.

No captions available

If the video doesn't have any available subtitles, the "CC" button won't appear at the bottom of the video.

Setting closed-captioning as a default

If you always want closed-captioning to appear when available, just click on your profile icon in the upper-righthand corner, select your name from the dropdown menu, and click on the "Settings" tab. Under "Closed Captions," toggle the button so the green checkmark appears. That's it – your preferences will be saved automatically!
