2023 The Big 7: Online Course Accessibility Basics
Date: Monday, April 10th, 2023
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Making your online course content accessible creates a more equitable learning environment for all students. Join the ASCCC Online Education Committee and representatives from the Chancellor’s Office Accessibility Center to learn about tools available to scan and fix basic accessibility issues while building content in Canvas. We’ll address accessibility in each of the “Big 7” areas (headings, alt text, lists, links, tables, color, and captions) and which accessibility tool most effectively handles those issues. Using break-out rooms, time will be offered for hands-on skill-building and questions. Tools will include the Canvas Accessibility Checker, Pope Tech, WAVE, and UDOIT. For captioning, Studio and YouTube will be discussed. We look forward to seeing you there!
