Accessibility Best Practices
Illinois Community Colleges Online (ILCCO) is hosting a series of workshops every Friday in May on “Breaking Down Barriers – Stories & Resources: Community, Culture and Accessibility”.
Accessibility enables individuals of diverse abilities to have access to the same materials, content, audio, video, and images. The Center for Teaching & Learning provides a number of resources to help make content accessible to all.
There are special accessibility considerations when working with complex images, like infographics, images of text, and more.
The math equation editor within the Canvas rich content editor saves in an accessible format.
Checking for accessibility issues within Canvas can be done within Canvas either using the Accessibility Checker in the rich content editor or by using UDOIT.
Correcting color contrast issues within Canvas can be done with built-in tools.
Any third-party materials used in a course must meet the same accessibility standards as self-created material.
