When it comes to creating online courses based on an existing non-digital course, transcription can play a big role in speeding up the process. By recording and transcribing lectures, you can create a written record of the course content that can be easily edited and shared. Once edited and improved, this is a great basis for your recording, either by being super prepared by going through this process of recording, transcribing, and editing, or simply because you use the edited transcript as a script for your teleprompter recording. Additionally, this text can be used to create study guides and quizzes, or even embedded directly into your course website. In short, transcription services can help ensure that your course content is accurate and easy to understand, making the process of creating an online course simpler and more efficient—especially if the automated transcription is used as the method of choice.
Transcription is the process of converting an audio or video recording into text. It is often used to create a transcript of a meeting, interview, or lecture. Automated transcription is a type of transcription that uses software to convert the audio or video recording into text. There are several different types of software that can be used for automated transcription. Some use algorithms to transcribe the audio or video, while others use machine learning to improve their accuracy over time.
Personally, I am using happyscribe and amberscript for any material that already exists (e.g., translating an English course to a German course, which might require the upload of already existing videos). I use spoke for transcriptions “on the fly”, as it also produces transcription pages that are easy to share (to the benefit of the students).
Of course, the transcripts also help once the course is live:
As online education continues to grow in popularity, so does the need for easier and faster ways to create course content. One way to speed up the process is through automated transcription. Educators can quickly and easily create course materials by using software that can automatically transcribe text into digital form. This technology has a number of benefits. This includes: reducing the amount of time spent on transcription, increasing consistency, and freeing up more time for other tasks.
