Presentation: That Was Easy! Integrating Accessibility Into Your Workflow

It is well known that accessibility is a full time job. Fortunately, in the Center for eLearning and Connected Environments (CeCE) at the University of Central Oklahoma, it is literally a full time job! In 2016 we hired an eLearning Accessibility Specialist to promote easy accessibility, because let’s face it: accessibility can be hard, even for eLearning professionals. By having a designated specialist, CeCE has made numerous strides in advancing accessible eLearning through policy updates, document and tool creation, and process improvement.

Now our instructional designers are able to focus on design while the specialist goes above the minimum compliance to a commitment in eLearning excellence for everyone. In this session, we will detail the steps we took to make accessibility a priority, share our resources, and discuss how to improve accessibility at any level, even if you don’t have your own specialist.
