Webinar: Part 2 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 II Overview:

We use presentations in all types of formats online. Online instruction includes PowerPoints, online presentations, Google Slides, and many more. Learn how to format your presentations and online tools that help a person with a vision or hearing disability be able to “see” and “hear” the same information as non-disabled. We will also discuss online software and how to determine if using the software is accessible for those with disabilities.

Objectives

  • Check accessibility on presentation tools
