Making eLearning accessible to everyone, especially people with special needs, is not only essential but also mandatory from a compliance perspective for many organizations. This is an obligatory effort that helps in creating great learning experiences for everyone and makes learning truly inclusive.

So, how exactly big is the issue of “accessibility”? Numbers in the United States tell a compelling story. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 61 million adult Americans have some form of disability. The same study reinforces that 26%, or 1 in 4 adults, in the United States,experience mobility, cognition, hearing, vision, or learning impairments. 

Accessibility support with WCAG 2.0/2.1 standard is, therefore, a non-negotiable mandate when it comes to eLearning. There is a lot of careful planning, design deliberation, knowledge of accessibility principles, and implementation experience that goes into making content functional, easier to perceive, quicker to understand, and intuitive to navigate. If you are an off-the-shelf content provider, a large enterprise, or a medium business, one thing is for sure – you would want to get the ‘accessibility’ implementation right.  

By the end of this webinar, learners will:

  • Identify key aspects while designing accessible content.
  • Identify what it takes to create accessible eLearning content.
  • Discuss success stories and case studies of implementing accessibility in eLearning.
