Instructors are required to make online content accessible to all students. This workshop provides information about how to design your Canvas course so all students can access it easily and ensure they have a similar experience.
We will start by examining the concepts of accommodation, accessibility, and usability. We will also discuss challenges learners can encounter, creating accessible content, improving usability of content, and look at ways to incorporate best practices for multimedia.
