Designing Accessible eLearning
Had a wonderful time presenting to a crowd of learning and training professionals last night. Thank you to all who attended.
As promised, below is the eLearning Accessibility Checklist of elements to consider and avoid as well as the AODA chart of key compliance dates.
Hope to speak again soon at the CSTD.
The learner experience in any training program affects the transfer of knowledge and the reputation of its designers and host organization. So how can instructional designers account for accessibility guidelines in their e-learning designs and still create a good experience for each learner?
In this session, Kelly Juhasz, President, The Knowledge Transfer Company, will explore techniques for designing e-Learning that is both accessible and engaging. We will review the most common web accessibility guidelines used in e-Learning (WCAG 2.0 Guidelines & Principles), and discuss how these guidelines may affect e-Learning. We will also see samples of engaging and accessible e-Learning and review specific case studies to illustrate design issues and decisions.
By the end of this session, you will:
1. Recognize how eLearning design can be both accessible and engaging so that all learners share the same quality experience
2. Describe the most common accessibility guidelines in web design used in eLearning
3. Describe how the AODA standards may affect eLearning design and delivery
