101 Accessible eLearning Myths and Tips

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, December 8

Empowering people to learn and to achieve their full potential is at the heart of what we do as eLearning professionals. That's why we're so focused on making our learning experiences engaging and effective. It's also why accessibility is crucial to the success of our content. Why would we design and develop inaccessible content, which creates barriers for a potential 12 - 26% of our learners and prevents them from achieving their potential?

In this session, you will be exposed to some of the biggest myths and misconceptions that stop many eLearning professionals from engaging with accessibility. You'll learn key facts and statistics to make you a better advocate for eLearning accessibility, how accessibility standards can be a help rather than a hindrance, and how content that is accessible enhances rather than harms the learning experience for all learners. Additionally, we'll discuss how authoring tool providers can support eLearning practitioners in creating accessible content. Finally, you'll learn strategies and tips on how to make resources more accessible for people with a range of disabilities and impairments.
