Some universities in the United States use online education for training new teachers about deaf education. Some parts of the United States do not have local options for teacher trainees to learn about deaf education. Online education helps universities reach trainees in other parts of the country. This article describes the experiences of one teacher training program in Texas. The program began training teachers of deaf students in the 1950s in traditional classrooms on campus. In 2009, it taught its first online training program. The article describes some of the technologies the university uses to make online education possible. It explains how they made the program accessible for deaf people training to become teachers. For example, some technologies make it easier for teacher trainers to caption video lectures.
