Making Your Digital Materials Accessible & Inclusive

Whether you teach an in-person or online course, any course content you offer digitally must be accessible to students with disabilities. This workshop explains what accessibility looks like in the context of Canvas and other methods of digital content delivery, why accessibility is important, and how accessible design can help all students, not just those with disabilities.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Create and upload accessible Word, PowerPoint and PDF documents
  • Create captions and transcripts for instructional videos
  • Use the tools in Canvas (Accessibility Checker and UDOIT) to ensure accessibility of your course materials
  • Understand the assistive technology that your students may be using

Please register to attend. You will receive an email with the Zoom meeting link.
