Improving Accessibility for Higher Education

Along with nearly every other industry, the world of higher education is facing unprecedented transformation driven by evolving technology. While developments in technology can present challenges, they also offer solutions.

Schools participating in federal financial aid programs are required to make reasonable accommodations to ensure their websites and web-based content are accessible to the broader population, including differently-abled people. Meeting these requirements can feel like a daunting and complex subject. What’s involved in improving accessibility? Where’s a good place to start? How does an institution measure progress? What does “good” look like?

In this webinar, we will cover:

  • An overview of accessibility and key areas of importance
  • Options for addressing accessibility requirements
  • How to plan an accessibility project
  • A live demo of the free OpenEDU accessibility checker for Drupal 8
