Their presentation, “Increase Accessibility in Your Online Courses,” will explore how to make a cyberlearning environment accessible to all users.
Using Blackboard Learn and Collaborate as the model cyberlearning infrastructures, the session will discuss how to make synchronous and asynchronous content accessible, and offer the session’s participants the opportunity to share what steps they have taken toward making their virtual classrooms accessible.
Ms. Clements has been an educator for the past 10 years and has a special interest in adult learning and distance learning technologies. This is the first time that Ms. Clements is collaborating with an IDPP faculty member.
