601 Accessibility from the Ground Up
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Thursday, May 18
Accessibility is not something that should be considered after content is created. That increases the challenges associated with creating accessible content. It’s much easier to create accessible eLearning than to go back and “retrofit” inaccessible content; some eLearning content cannot be “fixed” to be accessible.
In this session, you will explore the lessons learned during Learning Solutions Magazine’s recent “Accessibility from the Ground Up” series. You will examine a number of key areas related to accessibility in eLearning, including the use of captions, removing barriers, effective use of language, and more. You will also learn about recent regulatory changes related to accessibility.
