715 BYOD: Designing for 508 Compliance in Storyline 360
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 26
As learning organizations are tasked with including Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 accessibility requirements in their eLearning content, many designers and design teams are left asking the same question: How do I take a set of bullet points from a government website and put them into practice? What is tab order? What does good alt text look like, and when should I be using it? Inquiring minds want to know!
This BYOD session will answer these types of questions while retrofitting an existing Storyline 360 course with WCAG 2.0 level AA guidelines. You’ll learn how a team took a set of design standards used primarily by web designers and incorporated them into a compliant standard for instructional designers and internal learning content. You’ll also walk away with practical approaches for making your own Storyline projects more accessible.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why customizing the tab order of slides is important, and how to do it
- How to add good alternate and directional text to your courses
- How to build best practices and stick to them
- Tips, tricks, and what to avoid
Designers, developers, and managers.

Laptop running Articulate Storyline 2, 3, or 360.
