Recent budget trends have led to more collaboration across university systems. These collaborations help members solve common problems, share resources, and develop and support innovative initiatives beyond what individual institutions could do alone. Historically, higher education institutions have fallen behind in ensuring accessibility for teaching and learning systems in general, and specifically for video. In the past several years, the University of Nebraska campuses have seen an increased need to meet accessibility requirements for video, particularly in online courses. In this session, members of ITS from each campus will present processes and outcomes that led to selecting ilos as the system-wide tool for video storage and captioning. Ilos allows NU to focus on pedagogical design and instructional support for our faculty, while the system takes care of the infrastructure and workflow needed to ensure we meet accessibility standards. This session will also outline the strategies employed to make a system-wide decision, describe the benefits for faculty and students, and explain the leadership lessons learned.
