2016 Legal Landscape Update: Education

Posted on:

In 2016, the number of lawsuits for digital accessibility increased dramatically. With the court cases and settlements of previous years, the message was loud and clear: the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applied to digital accessibility and the Department of Justice (DOJ) was going to enforce digital accessibility. Educational institutions are often tasked with the mission of serving all students, and so it is important for them to make sure their materials are accessible.

Developing Accessible e-Learning – Where to Begin

Posted on:

With so many instructional design models, online content and e-Learning development tools it’s easy to get overwhelmed with choices or waylaid by the tools themselves rather than the design.  On top of that, most instructional design models, frameworks or e-Learning development tools do not directly speak to the inclusion of accessibility. Rather, designers are left to span a bridge of designing instructionally sound products that only include some laws, such as Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act.  On the flip side, if accessibility needs to be incorporated into an e-Learning program after the design and development are done, costly… Read More

e-Learning Accessibility & Usability

Posted on:

by Aina Irbe, Training Manager After 18 years in the field of e-Learning and as a doctoral learner in instructional design and online learning, I am intrigued by the intersection of usability and accessibility in the many delivery options offered by the online learning environment.
