S.02, Ep.06: Digital Accessibility at Virginia Tech



Mark Nichols is the Senior Director of Universal Design and Accessible Technologies at Virginia Tech and a longtime friend of the AEM Center and CAST. This episode starts with Mark sharing the personal experience that drives everything he does as an accessibility professional. We then explore the exciting Choose Accessible Learning Materials, or CALM, initiative and how it has helped Mark and his team “franchise” digital accessibility at Virginia Tech. Mark also touches on how the AEM Quality indicators have informed that work from the beginning. And stay tuned until the end for information on how you can get access to design files you too can use to create your own campus digital accessibility initiative.
