Are your online courses accessible? Hear about Portland Community College’s strategy and the lessons staff learned when they addressed accessibility with more than 400 instructors who teach approximately 2,400 sections of online classes within a complex four-campus college. The presenters will share the process they used to roll out their initiative, accessibility guidelines, and their phased approach for reaching the college’s goal of ensuring all online classes are accessible.
Specific strategies include: creating an awareness campaign, developing and implementing faculty training, including accessibility in the new course review process, analyzing the resources needed to retrofit existing online courses for accessibility, and instituting discipline-specific collaboration among online faculty. The presenters will share online resources and review tools.
