Description

Many states and school districts are using Open Educational Resources (OER) for reasons that are as much about innovation as they are about economy. OER are available for any curriculum and can be accessed, used, adapted, and re-distributed at no cost. And with careful consideration in the creation and curation process, they can be accessible to learners with disabilities. In this session, we'll introduce an openly available protocol for evaluating the accessibility of created or curated OERs in a number of formats (Word and Google documents, PDFs, videos, and more).

CAST (Center for Applied Special Technology)

Non-profit organization that works to expand learning opportunities for all individuals through research and development.
