816 CANCELLED - BYOD: Accessibility! Designing WCAG & 508-Compliant Courses in Storyline 360
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 25
As learning organizations are focusing more on accessibility, they’re tasked with including section 508 and WCAG requirements in their eLearning content. This leaves many designers and design teams asking the same questions: How do I take a set of bullet points from a government website and put them into practice? What is tab order? What does good alt text look like and when should I be using it? Do I need both captions and a transcript to be compliant? Inquiring minds want to know!
In this hands-on BYOD session, we’ll answer these types of questions and more as we retrofit a Storyline 360 course to help it meet WCAG 2.0 level AA guidelines. With easy-to-implement tips on topics like tab order, alt text, and captioning, you’ll learn how to take a set of design standards used primarily by web designers and incorporate them into a compliant standard for instructional designers and internal learning content.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why customizing the tab order of slides is important and how to do it
- The difference between captions and transcripts, and what each is solving for
- How to add good alternate and directional text to your courses
- About accessibility best practices in Storyline 360, and how to stick to them
- Accessibility tips, tricks, and what to avoid
