**For those professors with students who are deaf or hard of hearing, we have arranged for your course content to be captioned by 3Play Media. To have this done please add Justin Smith (jbs260), who works for Rutgers Kaltura. He will ensure that all the videos are being captioned. 3Play will automatically caption your videos in Kaltura. So long as you are sharing your content through Kaltura, the captions will be accessible to all your students.**
