A Practical Guide to Campus IT Accessibility

A Practical Guide to Campus IT Accessibility

More digital educational materials are being created on the 21st century campus than any other time in history. The rising tide of online lectures, textbooks, assignments and discussions has arguably changed education for the better by giving most students more access and control over their learning. But this change has also challenged many universities to ask themselves, “How do we make these assets accessible and barrier-free to all??

It is essential that schools shore up their strategic framework and become experts on digital accessibility laws and best practices.

So what does this mean for you, your staff and your campus?

Join us for a free webinar where our expert panel will discuss current and emerging issues related to IT accessibility, including policy and law. They’ll discuss implications and share strategies and tips for ensuring your institutions’ technologies are accessible to all learners. They’ll cover:

  • Campus accessibility compliance issues and recent enforcement changes that schools should be aware of
  • How accessibility regulations have brought renewed attention to the importance of the scope and quality of closed captioning
  • One campus’s current best practices and strategic initiatives to address accessibility
  • How solid accessibility practices will foster deeper engagement with faculty and students campus-wide
