Course Overview:

In Module 1, you'll develop empathy for the disabling impact and frustration people experience when digital accessibility has not been incorporated into content design.

In the second module, you will develop your understanding of the breadth and scope of digital accommodation needs in our diverse population of learners. We’ll delve into the basic principles of digital accessibility that have broad application across a wide range of technologies, document and media formats. You'll find before and after examples, carefully curated resources, and tips to start incorporating accessibility into your daily work.

The remaining modules cover MU Extension's most common digital media and communication formats:

  • Online courses
  • Live webinars, video and audio recordings,
  • Presentations
  • Documents and files
  • Email and social media

For each topic, you'll find

  • a list of basic competencies with associated resources,
  • available trainings,
  • additional resources for a deeper dive into each topic
  • a formative assessment to help you gauge your knowledge and readiness to move to the  assignment, and  
  • a summative assignment to demonstrate your mastery of each tool.
