eLearning Accessibility

Sep 20, 2017

G'day everyone,

Here in Australia, content developed for HTML by government must meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). This includes elearning content. In my department we have adopted universal accessible design principles to ensure our learning experience is accessible and inclusive. ie: When designing a drag and drop activity, we include an accessible alternative actiivty in the elearning itself and do not rely on text alternatives.

I have heard recently that there is a growing area of law concerning access to web content globally involving increasing legal action. I was courious to know if this is a concern for you how you are addressing this in your corner of the world?

Hi Megan. Thanks for sharing your question with us. While I'm not familiar with the growing area of law that you've mentioned, I'm sure others are very engaged in this topic. I think you might get a little more participation from the community (and some more informed responses than mine!) by offering up a few more details. For instance, do you have any relevant articles or links you could share on the matter? That might provide the context folks need to jump into the conversation. :-)
