 Engaging Students with Accessible Course Design

At this presentation, discover key research-based best practices for designing accessible course content. Learn how these practices can be applied within any learning management system or content creation process. Live demonstrations will clearly illustrate the challenges assistive technology users encounter when online content is created without accessibility and Universal Design in mind. Accessibility resources will be available and time will be provided for questions.

Marlene and Aaron present together at regional, national, and international events, working to ensure their audiences fully understand the experience of assistive technology users and the importance of inclusive course design.

The Accessibility MOOC

Marlene Zentz and Aaron Page are offering a moderated MOOC titled The Accessibility MOOC: Inclusive Online Course Design.

The MOOC (Moderated Open Online Course) is designed and implemented by Marlene and Aaron. The course was sparked by the simple idea: help any instructor across the world learn how to deliver more accessible online courses and content to their students.  The course is just a small piece of Blackboard's effort to increase awareness around best practices that support more inclusive learning environments.

The MOOC is free and you can self-enroll at any time prior to October 16th.

October 16th – November 10th
