Facing a change-of-plans for your interview or focus-group data collection because of the Covid-19 pandemic? Learn how you can use remote hosting, recording and transcription tools to collect your qualitative audio or video data, get hands-on practice with VT’s free video and transcription tools, and start planning your own collection and transcription workflow.


The workshop introduces common approaches and issues in collecting and transcribing audio/visual data. It introduces automatic tools such as Kaltura, Otter and YouTube as well as manual options. Participants will practice using Kaltura to request and edit transcripts and create personalized plans for A/V data collection, transcription and preparation suited to their own potential projects.


This is an introductory workshop: you do not need experience, data, or a project to participate. Anyone can register, but you will need a VT login to participate in the activities.


All workshops in the Data Education Series are available online via Zoom; links will be sent when you register.
