Accessibility for Online Learning

  Presenter: Britne Jenke, CPACC, CPTD, SHRM-SCP

  Title: Consultant

  Organization: Inclusive Pixelation


This program is for everyone who designs, facilitates, or manages online learning programs, including elearning, webinars, virtual classrooms, websites, computer-based job aids, social media, anything that involves technology - which a great deal of learning today does.

I believe it’s critical to consider accessibility, disability, and usability in online learning, because without understanding the types of assistive technologies learners may use and how to design with inclusion in mind, you may end up unintentionally excluding your learners from your training program.

So in this session, we’re going to learn how to create accessible online learning, and also learn how to evaluate our existing courses for accessibility. Participants will leave with templates and resources to get started on course accessibility right away!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand types of disabilities and assistive technology, as well as challenges experienced by disabled learners
  2. Learn how to create accessible online learning (with practice activities!)

  3. Learn how to evaluate accessibility of existing online learning

Bonus! How do I convince others to prioritize accessibility?
