All students should have equal access to educational opportunities, though students with disabilities often face additional challenges, particularly with the development of digital technologies that may not be user-friendly for this population of students.  

On Thursday, October 25th from 12:00 – 1:00pm, online via Zoom, CNDLS is pleased to offer Designing Accessible Courses in Canvas, a webinar introducing fundamental principles and best practices to improve the accessibility of course materials in Canvas. CNDLS staff who specialize in learning design and online learning will share basic steps to ensure your Canvas course content is accessible, including creating accessible page structure, lists, hyperlinks and images. These practices benefit all students using the Canvas platform, especially those with vision, motor, or hearing impairments.  This webinar will grant participants a deeper understanding of how to design with accessibility in mind.

We invite you to register for this webinar today. Can’t make it? The presentation portion of the webinar will be recorded and made available on the CNDLS website.

This will be the second installment of our Digital Learning Webinar Series, exploring the use of different technologies that enhance teaching and learning.
