ET106 508 Compliancy and WACG 2.0 in Storyline
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM Wednesday, March 16
eLearning Tools Stage
Courses that meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 accessibility requirements are in high demand. However, many instructional designers lack both the understanding of what 508 compliance really means and the competency to effectively develop compliant courses. In this session, participants will see how Articulate Storyline can help you create eLearning modules that are more accessible for users. You will learn how to use alternate text to describe screen elements and you will learn to build courses with closed captioning effects. Finally, you will leave this session understanding the Storyline features that support accessible content.
