This session will summarize best practices for making websites and e-learning materials compliant and useful for students with special needs. The presenters recently completed a year-long grant project to create a free online training resource and professional development program for course developers at the university level to assist them in meeting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Resources include a look at course management software (i.e. A Tutor is highly compliant), automatic tools for testing compliance on some issues (i.e. Bobby is a popular one), developer tools (i.e. the web accessibility toolbar) and common problems with solution options. This session will equip attendees with key strategies for building on-line accessible materials based upon that project, the corresponding literature, and the presenters’ previous work with special populations.
