How to engage all your learners when faced with moving training online?
Training Managers have a lot to do – especially as you have team members moving to working remote, that were in-office last week. How do you continue to address accessibility for your organization’s training program as you move more elements online?
There are things that you’ll be able to do that are not difficult. Ensuring that designers check for adequate color contrast, that acronyms are defined, that images have alt-text are steps relatively easy to do. Some goals are more difficult to achieve: making sure the proper structure is in place for those who use screen readers; incorporating accessibility into development processes, and testing with audiences that include users with disabilities.
Ensuring that training is accessible—just like ensuring usability, effectiveness, and engagement—is part of the training development process. Our team has put together resources and content helpful to training and HR professionals faced with moving training online, such as The Training Manager’s Guide to Accessible Elearning and the Learning Dispatch newsletter. Let us know if you have questions and check back for updates – we are here, ready to support you.
