What is accessibility in learning and why does it matter?
“Accessible” learning is learning that is inclusive and available to everyone, including those with challenges like low vision and blindness, hearing loss and deafness, learning disabilities, and mobility problems. Designing accessible courses is important because it provides a level playing field for all employees to have equal opportunity to learn, no matter their background or abilities.
Accessibility Basics is a collection of 18 previously-published articles from Learning Solutions on how to make work more accessible, updated to reflect on the needs of today’s workforce. Articles chosen for this curation were selected to help spread awareness around the importance of accessibility in learning, and provide those within the community easy access to a bundle of resources that they can reference when designing and delivering future courses.
