Faculty Focus

Accessible web content is usable by all people, regardless of physical or developmental abilities or impairments.

At Brandeis, we have a responsibility to make sure everything we put online — from videos to photos to how we organize content and create links — is as accessible as possible. In these classes, you will learn why accessibility is important and how to make various types of content accessible.

Making course content accessible
Class materials are created using a wide range of media from PowerPoint to video, word processing to specialized tools. Best practices for content creation can be applied across all  materials, however some content types require specific skills to maximize accessibility. You may sign up for modules as appropriate to your teaching style.

Modules

Trainings are held in accessible rooms when available. If there currently isn't a session available in an accessible room, please contact us and we can request alternate locations to hold the training or set up more sessions.
