Description

With increasing pressure to provide accessible course materials on day one , institutions are revisioning their accessibility and inclusive design strategies. These can be tough conversations as goals and policies are rethought.  Join accessibility leaders in a discussion focused on how quality can be described, including compliance, guidelines, professional development, data procedures, and resources. They will share with participants the work being done to map IMS Global’s key principles for EPUB and AEM’s Quality Indicators to help institutions develop an accessibility strategy leveraging content standards.
