How can you improve the accessibility of your online course?
Welcome to K-Access, I am here to help you make your online course content accessible. As daunting as it may seem, accessibility can be easy to achieve if you start your project with accessibility in mind.
Why accessibility? The Department of Education issued guidance in regards to accessibility and higher education recently. They have posted a press release on the educational use of technology and a "Dear Colleague Letter" to institutions of higher education. Plain and simple, accessibility is the law . It is also K-State policy: K-State Course Accessibility Standards Policy
The goal of K-Access is to help you with:
- A Quick and Simple Accessibility Checklist with QuickTips sheets for you to save or print.
- Examples of "What makes content accessible" and why accessibility is important.
- Tips for the accessible and accommodating use of K-State Online
- Resources for more information and best practices for accessibility.
