The prevalence of online video has led to an incredible virtual library of resources on pretty much every topic you could imagine. With this virtual library comes responsibility: because 19% of the US population has a disability, there are many laws that dictate accessibility requirements for video content. We will be discussing several ways to make your online courses and video content more accessible in our upcoming webinars: first, we’ll cover the importance of following closed captioning best practices and standards, presented by DCMP; second, we’ll discuss how to apply the principles of universal design to create accessible course content. You can register for these webinars by following the links below.
