As a part of "The Year of Accessibility", the Online Learning Consortium and WCET continue to collaborate to bring our communities resources on the topic of accessibility.

Since the Department of Justice and the Office for Civil Rights released the joint "Dear Colleague" letter regarding accessible ebook readers and other educational technology in 2010, colleges and universities have been scrambling to make sure that their online environments and activities are accessible. And it has been an exercise fraught with angst and terror. There are no federal regulations to guide efforts and it feels like a giant guessing game with multiple right answers and no clear indication of what will protect the institution from a lawsuit or federal complaint. While all of these are true, there are answers and clear guidance that can help instructional designers and faculty ensure they are building accessibility into their online activities and web presence. This panel of "been there, done that" experts will share their tricks, tips and strategies for making accessibility a treat, and a little less scary.

The webinar format will be a 45 minute panel presentation with 15 minutes for Q & A at the end of the hour.

We encourage webinar registrants to complete a pre-webinar survey before the event so that we can learn more about our attendees. Please complete the 2-minute survey as soon as you have registered for the event.
