>A How-To Guide for Creating Accessible Content
>Universal design seeks to make online learning available and accessible
>for all types of learners. Online faculty and instructional designers
>often find themselves overwhelmed or too busy with their day-to-day
>responsibilities to fully appreciate and integrate the design principles
>and tools that can be used to make learning equitable, flexible, and adaptable.
>In this hands-on workshop you will discover how principles of Universal
>Design can help you create course content that can be accessed and used by
>anyone, including people with disabilities. By the end of this workshop,
>participants will have a good understanding of Universal Design Principles
>for Online Learning, potential accessibility/usability issues that need to
>be considered in course design, and how to create more accessible/usable
>course content. As the workshop focus will be on web accessibility,
>familiarity with an HTML authoring tool is desired but not required.
>The content will be delivered in an online asynchronous format using the
>Moodle LMS. While the content is asynchronous, we expect the students to
>closely follow the daily schedule of content. There will also be 3
>synchronous Webinars for members to attend. These will be recorded for
>those whose schedules prevent their attending.
>Develop an understanding of Universal Design Principles for Online Learning.
>Understand how people with disabilities access the web and other formats.
>Develop an understanding of potential accessibility/usability issues that
>need to be considered in course design and instruction.
>Create more accessible/usable Microsoft Word documents.
>Create more accessible/usable HTML-based course content.
>June 15 2011 - June 24 2011 (10 days)
>This workshop is offered via Sloan Consortium and eligible for the Sloan-C
