Discover the Importance of Accessibility in eLearning

It’s easy for eLearning designers to lose sight of the fact that what works for many does not work for all. There are a lot of people who have some layer of challenge or disability that prevents them from participating in a typical eLearning design. How can we address that and make our designs more inclusive for people who struggle with different challenges?

At the eLearning Accessibility Summit, you will explore accessibility within eLearning design and gain a better understanding of the challenges people face and the work being done across the globe to accommodate these challenges.

Gain the Knowledge and Tools to Accommodate Accessibility

Industry experts will share tips on how to improve eLearning design to be in line with accessibility standards. Professionals from outside the field will home in on the “why,” to help you understand the importance of accessibility and the associated regulations.
