      I have really gravitated towards Challenge #7. I have decided to make a demo video for all of my students to review after the lesson on their own time. Specifically for those that need to see the content done in front of them and to follow along. I will add captioning to my videos as well as the possibility of a transcript, if that is available in the platform that I am using. I never even thought of a transcript, but that could be very useful for those that might need to run it through a translator as well.
