No Learner Left Behind: Designing and Delivering Accessible Learning Programs

Accessibility for learning is more important than ever! Roughly 19 percent of the U.S. population has a disability of some sort, and some people have more than one. Whether you’re designing an online course, instructor-led classroom, or any other format, you need to make sure that your audience can access the content. Not only do you want to reach your learners where they are, in many cases, you are required to do so by law. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that information technology be available to all individuals, regardless of disability.

Learning professionals must be able to design and deliver courses that work for people who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard-of-hearing, or have a cognitive processing or motor disorder. In this webinar, you will learn about all aspects of creating an accessible learning program that is also Section 508 compliant. We’ll identify what you can and cannot do during the design process to create accessible visuals, activities, and quizzes that engage your learners and optimize the learning process. We’ll also examine options for assessing learning, testing your system, and integrating with your LMS. This webinar will the challenge you and open your mind to the importance of designing and delivering accessible learning programs.

This webinar will cover:

  • How to create accessible visuals, activities, and quizzes that engage your learners and optimize the learning process
  • How to create an accessible and Section 508 compliant learning program
  • How to assess learning, test your system, and integrate with your LMS
