Accessibility Training Now in e-Learning
As part of UF’s commitment to ensuring all of its electronic information technology resources are ADA-compliant, an Accessible Online Environments course was developed and is now available in e-Learning. The course provides faculty and staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet ADA compliance when creating a course or any other online content for UF. The eight course modules give a high-level overview of how online content can pose problems for people with vision, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments. Step-by-step instructions on how to implement accessible fonts, colors, headings and alt text are provided. The introduction videos for each module are a combined total of just under 19 minutes in length, and are recommended viewing for anyone in the UF community who develops documents and content that may end up online. To register, visit https://training.it.ufl.edu/, click “view available training,” and then click on “Accessible Online Environments.” Upon registration, participants will receive instruction on how to access the course in e-Learning.
