CSUN 2020: Resources for Kevin Gumienny’s Presentations
Senior Learning Architect Kevin Gumienny is presenting a full day pre-conference workshop at the 2020 CSUN Assistive Technology Conference.
Let’s Build Accessible Elearning!
Elearning, like other forms of online content, needs to be available to people with disabilities. All too often, when course designers and developers attempt to meet accessibility standards, the result is text-only, click-next elearning that doesn’t embrace the level of activity made possible by using today’s elearning development tools. This workshop will guide participants in using a rapid authoring elearning development tool to develop elearning activities that will both comply with accessibility guidelines and be engaging and interactive. Participants will bring their own computer equipped with their development tool of choice, a pre-installed screen reader, and a set of headphones.
