Families and educators who have at least one student with a disability can sign up for free membership to gain access to DCMP's accessible educational resources. DCMP has thousands of videos with captions and audio description (and many in ASL) and teacher tools for building lessons. Lessons can include clips you make from DCMP videos and materials that you create at myASLTech. Educators can use DCMP's accessible videos for all their students, online and in the classroom, ensuring an equitable learning experience. There are no charges for membership or any of DCMP's services.

  • Teachers can create Clips and Lessons, which allow you to select portions of DCMP videos, create clips, and then use those clips as stand-alone videos or as part of a Lesson. A Lesson can include clips, full videos, quizzes, text, your own files, and materials created at myASLTech.
