Webinar: Part 3 - Making Your Online Course Accessible: How to Meet ADA Guidelines

THREE PART SERIES - Oct. 29, Nov. 5, Nov. 12 (Recordings will be available through CTL if you cannot attend all three!)

Online instruction provides various opportunities for students to learn and work with the content. Sometimes we create these nuggets of enhanced content without considering how a person with a disability can access the information. For example, how does a person who is blind read a syllabus or journal article? These three webinars will cover the primary ways we present learning content. As well as quick and easy techniques to make sure a person with a disability can learn as quickly as a non-disabled person. The unexpected benefit is that the students without a disability also benefit from the accessibility features we add!

Part III Overview:

Images, charts, graphs, videos, and podcasts enhance online instruction, but how does a person with a vision or hearing disability get the same learning experience as a non-disabled person. Learn how to add captions and image descriptions, called alternative text, to your online content to make your course one step closer to being accessible.

Objectives

  • Understand how captions happen
  • Experience an Audio description example
  • Observe how to write descriptions for complex images
  • Create a caption files from your own video
  • Discuss 3rd party caption and audio description services
