Thomas Cooper Library, Level 3,
Do you post materials online for students? Are you designing an online course? Do you already teach online? Faculty who post materials online for students and create online courses may need to be aware of accessibility issues in creating online course documents. This locally taught Webinar will review the basics of creating accessible documents using Microsoft Office programs Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The program will explore accessibility issues in each of the programs listed above, as well as unique situations for each one. Adaptive strategies will be discussed in the context of images and alternative text, hyperlinks and lists, tables and charts, layout styles and formatting, slide layouts, and outline and notes panels. Sample documents will be provided and attendees will be able to participate on a computer while listening to the instructor. This presentation will be useful for both PC and Mac users. Join others in the Multimedia Classroom on Level 3 of the Thomas Cooper Library for this online session addressing accessibility issues in online content.
This workshop is co-sponsored by University Technology Services and the Center for Teaching Excellence.
