Abstract

This presentation by distance instructional designers details different techniques and guidelines to make online courses more accessible. Accessibility checkers and guidelines vary widely in their application and often require a thorough understanding of accessibility techniques within the particular Learning Management System (LMS). We will share our view and definition of accessible courses as well as some lessons learned from designing accessible courses at the University of British Columbia. Techniques and checklists developed for particular use within WebCT/Vista will be analysed alongside those used at an institution with it’s own in-house developed LMS to develop some generalisable techniques for making accessibility accessible to online course developers.
