Event Overview

Accessibility of online courses can seem daunting at times.  Learn the reasoning and laws behind accessible course content delivery, and the steps you can take in developing online courses that are accessible to all.  We will share feedback from a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) course, demonstrate tools and discuss steps we are taking to improve accessibility. 

Understand how the 5 W’s of accessible online content delivery are being used:
- Who is affected by your content delivery
- Why you should care
- What you can do
- When you should take action. 
- Where you can go for support

The afternoon will include a planning activity based on information presented.

Identify laws that impact accessibility of online learning

- I
dentify methods of informing faculty of tools to implement UDL in online courses.
