Web Accessibility in Educational Resources

Web accessibility can confuse even the most tech-savvy instructors and administrators. Presenter Sara Tyler will show how Hawkes Learning explains Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA conformance to demystify the steps instructors need to take in order to determine whether their publishers’ materials meet these standards.

Join Sara as she explains Hawkes Learning’s company-wide initiative of achieving WCAG 2.0 Level AA conformance. Its mission is to reach beyond technical compliance and deliver an easy to use interface that allows students of all abilities to focus on learning course material, not how to use the system.

Take away key facts about web accessibility, including who is affected by web accessibility; how web design works with assistive technologies; and tips on how to ensure a web program is perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust: the four key principles of web accessibility.
