Design for All: Essential Accessibility Practices

Course Info

Accessibility in e-learning design is more than making accommodations for those with disabilities. When you consider the broad range of individuals who are your learners, you will find that designing for accessibility is a requirement, not an option. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to break down barriers, and you’ll learn the essential practices for creating more accessible digital content. Not only will these practices integrate seamlessly into your design process without adding unnecessary work, they will enhance the learning experience for everyone. This workshop demystifies accessibility, ultimately fostering an inclusive design approach that enhances the learning experience for all.
