Web Accessibility in e-Learning
Keep your course Web
site accessible to students with disabilities because:
1. It is the right thing to do; ensure students with disabilities are included fully in your class activities. Notice, accessibility features benefit all students while ensuring usability.
2. It is the law...
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, CA Gov Code11135, and the CCC Distance Education Access Guidelines require that your course Web pages and activities
are accessible to people with disabilities.
e-ZLRN, LBCC's e-learning environment,
is fully accessible to students with disabilities. Content you include within this environment needs to be accessible as well. ITDC provides ongoing workshops
for you to learn what it takes to keep your site in compliance and accessible to all your students.
The ITDC staff is
available to help you with the accessibility production of large volumes of your course content that need accessibility adjustments
or with any other challenge you may experience during the process of making
your course pages accessible. Please come to the Instructional Technology Development Center (L124)
or contact the HelpDesk for questions or assistance.
Keeping your course Web site accessible is
not as complicated as it may seem. In fact, it requires only a couple of short steps. When you develop a site for Online, Hybrid or Face-to-Face courses, accessibility information is included in workshops and training materials. Contact an ITDC Team member if you have questions.
