Make Online Training Accessible for Everyone!

In the time of COVID-19, with social distancing, stay at home, and remote working the new normal, training has proved remarkably adaptable, sometimes shifting to virtual environments, sometimes building on existing learning management systems, sometimes being delivered through new self-study web-based training sessions.

What can get left behind in the rapid shift to online training is the need to ensure that both the training and the delivery methods are accessible—that is, usable by those with disabilities (accommodations which are often required by federal, state, or local laws).

Join us as we explore how to make online training available to everyone. You’ll leave with answers to questions like these:

  • Why does training need to be accessible?
  • How can you ensure that online training is accessible?
  • What resources can help?

In this one-hour session, we’ll touch on principles and explore practices. We’ll provide resources. And we’ll make sure to have plenty of time for questions and answers.
