Get an overview of the six areas that have the greatest impact on making your online content more accessible. Unintentional barriers to learning can happen when headings, links, color, images, tables, and multimedia are incorrectly used or formatted. Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to make all of your online content more accessible, including ELMS-Canvas course spaces, emails, presentations, and handbooks. Participants will leave the workshop with new skills for increased accessibility as well as additional resources for implementing the Six Essential Steps in all aspects of creating and editing online content.
