Making Multimedia Content Accessible to All: Accessibility Tips & Tricks

I will share specific examples of how, why and which steps to take towards improving ADA compliance in course design. I will also identify some modifications faculty can make when creating and sharing content.

Creating online courses that are accessible to all students regardless of age, ability, or life situation can be challenging. I'll explain some of the ways course content can be made accessible, benefiting all students, regardless of ability. I will review online course design, giving practical advice on making courses more accessible, the various technologies that enable access, and the barriers that can inadvertently block student engagement. Throughout the presentation, I'll provide specific examples of accessibility when creating and managing online content through the Learning Management System.
