How do I block certain websites from captioning?

If you are an administrator on an institutional Caption.Ed site license, here's how you can block users from captioning content hosted on certain domains. 

Step 1: Log in to your Caption.Ed dashboard.

Step 2: Select "Settings" on the left-hand menu, then select "Institutional Admin".

Step 3: Scroll down the page till you see the "Captioning Source Control" menu.

Step 4: Select "Add new" from the menu. Enter the URL of the website you wish to block (e.g. www.netflix.com). Click "Save" to confirm the change. 

Now, all of the users on your institutional site license will have that website blocked from being able to generate captions using Caption.Ed.
You can change the URL of a blocked website by clicking the "edit' icon on the menu, or remove it entirely from the blocked list by selecting the "delete" icon.
