This learning community meeting will cover 10 basic strategies for creating accessible online course content. Participants will learn about the Quality Matters framework, specific approaches to address accessibility and usability, as well as how to build a timeline for implementing these changes. 'How to' resources will be provided.

Creating accessible websites and digital materials in your educational environment reduces barriers and ensures that all students encounter your materials can understand and interact with them.

Websites and digital materials that are not designed with accessibility in mind exclude a significant population of potential users from participating in an ever increasing internet dependent world. Unfortunately, information exclusion is a barrier people with disabilities all too often experience.

Facilitated by, Laura Bestler, Program Coordinator, CELT along with with Special Guest Cyndi Wiley, Digital Access Coordinator, IT
