Online Learning in a Coronavirus World

When the pandemic known as COVID-19 spread across the world, universities adjusted quickly by shifting from in-person instruction to online learning. Teachers and students in the United States and elsewhere migrated their courses to the digital realm, and distance learning became the normalized method and practice of teaching, almost overnight.

While this was uncharted territory for some, FFTranscription has been diligently supporting the academic community since 2003, by providing class lecture transcription, inverted//flipped teaching transcription, and dissertation and research interview transcription. Offering audio to text, as well as text to text and translation, our transcription services can help students and educators find the path to global success.

How Academic Transcription Helps COVID-19 Learning

While the novel coronavirus crisis mandated that education facilities move to online formats, many institutions of higher learning already utilize transcription services to support their students and faculty. Here’s why academic transcription can be even more valuable to online learners:

Visual vs. Auditory Learning

It’s long been known that reading, compared to only listening to a lecture, actually doubles memory retention. Information is initially taken in via lecture, and then reinforced in a textual format. Having access to a lecture transcript is an invaluable study tool, useful for making notes, highlighting and review of key points. And let’s face it, a transcript turns a one hour lecture into a 10 minute read.

Likewise for an educator, transcripts from recorded lectures are useful for review of class discussions, student questions and in exam preparation. FFTranscription’s affordable rates, combined with our accuracy guarantee, support the academic world with the results needed for success. Captioning that complies with all ADA requirements is also available for hearing impaired students.
