I probably could take captions from the larger videos to put into the shorter videos, but I think it would be easier to do it from the shorter videos into the larger video. (If that makes sense. Ha!)

>> Hello Natasha -
>> Thank you for this offer of the idea of volunteered time from your students, and also the offer of your time to find grants and donations to make it happen. This is wonderful.

>> Sounds like a fun project for them, and very valuable for everyone all around. And a good educational project for your students as well, because they will be learning the techniques of the technology, plus learning the information from the presentations they are captioning…It is a win-win kind of project…
>> 
>> So we will need to work as a team with you Natasha, since our organization needs to provide you with the videos to caption, and to give you information as to what needs to be captioned next and so forth…
>> 
>> So yes, let’s work together… the information will be coming...

Perhaps the editing and captioning is something I could get a group of middle school students to work on as a service learning project?  I will also try to involve other teachers with ASL students and Deaf and Hard of Hearing students to join us.  Contact me with details and I will work on grants and donations to make this happen over this school year!
