The Quest for Universal Design: Using UDOIT Cloud to Seek Out and Transform Inaccessible Content

Description 

When we talk about accessibility in course design, it is common to think in terms of accommodating students with disabilities. In reality, accessibility and universal design for learning (UDL) focuses on making course materials easier for ALL students to access and understand. Although incorporating these best practices into a course is not hard or time consuming when building NEW content, checking and fixing past materials can seem like a daunting task. Not anymore!  UDOIT Cloud is a new tool that will scan the vast terrain of your Canvas course and help you find a path to transforming your inaccessible content in ways that make it accessible to students. This session will not only demonstrate the latest gear in the quest for accessibility but will give you practical tips for and explanations of how to effectively use your gear to reach your ultimate destination: accessible course content founded on the principles of universal design.
