Enhancing Accessibility - 2 - Sep 2012
You want to make your course accessible to as many learners as possible? No sweat! In this workshop we’ll discuss how to create documents in accessible formats, explore productivity tools to promote learner engagement, and discuss how learners with disabilities use assistive technology to navigate online learning environments. We’ll look at Universal Course Design best practices and evaluating the accessibility of online classes with a new assessment tool developed by Macquarie University. You will also be provided with a resource list of open source and freeware applications you can use to build greater access into on-line environments.
