Designing Accessible Online Courses

July 23, 2020 (3:00 AM - 3:40 AM)

Keys to Inspiring Teachers to Design Accessible Online Courses

Training faculty members to embrace digital accessibility practices can be challenging. With data showing 11 percent of higher education students in the U.S. have some form of disability, educators have a special responsibility to make sure digital materials such as Word documents and PowerPoint presentations are accessible to all. How do you inspire faculty members to design their courses with that mind? This interactive session will explore best practices for using Blackboard Ally for training teachers to embrace digital accessibility techniques that help students accomplish more. This session will debunk many of the myths that exist when it comes to making content accessible for people with disabilities.
