Uploading Information and Closed Captioning

Uploading into the Library

We suggest uploading video to the library rather than directly onto the step, as this allows you to continue working in SimTutor while the video uploads in the background. Once complete, you can instantly drag and drop it into the video step. This also allows you to upload many videos at once. Check out the Library support page for more detail on this.

Closed Captioning

After uploading a video, it will appear in the library. Hover over the video you wish to add the caption file to, then click edit properties button (shown to the left). This will open an area that you can upload your .vtt file.




A .vtt file is a subtitle format we use, and it can be created using online apps, or even a simple text editor. 

Below is an example .vtt compatible file.


00:00:00.500 --> 00:00:02.000
The Web is always changing

00:00:02.500 --> 00:00:04.300
and the way we access it always changing

The timestamp in the upper line of the subtitle defines the start and end point of that subtitle, and the lower text is the text that displays. e.g. from 0.5 sec to 2 sec, the text "The Web is always changing" will display.
