Verbit, the leading transcription and captioning solution, announced today the implementation of its platform at eight universities across the U.S. Verbit’s AI technology allows for the transcription and captioning of course material, leading to increased comprehension and higher engagement for students in the classroom. The solution also expands new learning opportunities by providing captioning to online video content.
Universities that have adopted the technology include the Fashion Institute of Technology, Utah State University, University of Utah, University of Southern Utah, University of Vermont, Auburn University, Western Governor University and University of California Santa Barbara.
“When we first brought Verbit to university campuses, we knew it would be able to provide a special service for students, especially those who are a part of the hard of hearing community,” said Tom Livne, co-founder and CEO of Verbit. “We’re now seeing that the benefits are widespread, and that other students and academic departments are seeing the importance of offering transcription and captioning campus-wide. It’s our pleasure to help these eight universities bring new opportunities to their communities.”
"The Fashion Institute of Technology is constantly striving to provide new, innovative ways to engage our students and provide them with unconventional learning opportunities,” said Richard Hoar, executive director at the Fashion Institute of Technology. “We chose Verbit to help us bring blended learning programs to the student experience because of its innovative approach and advanced technology that allows us to extend our reach beyond our New York campus.”
