ATDps: February 2024 Virtual Member Event
This program is for everyone who designs, facilitates, or manages online learning programs, including elearning, webinars, virtual classrooms, websites, computer-based job aids, social media, anything that involves technology - which a great deal of learning today does. I believe it’s critical to consider accessibility, disability, and usability in online learning, because without understanding the types of assistive technologies learners may use and how to design with inclusion in mind, you may end up unintentionally excluding your learners from your training program. So in this session, we’re going to learn how to create accessible online learning, and also learn how to evaluate our existing courses for accessibility. Participants will walk away with templates and resources to get started on course accessibility right away!
- Discuss challenges facing disabled learners who participate in online learning.
- Understand types of assistive technology used by disabled students.
- Make adjustments while creating online learning materials to ensure they are accessible and usable.
- Evaluate accessibility and usability of your online learning materials.
