Turn your 508 Courses into 508-GREAT Courses with the eLearning Brothers
I'm a Lectora Certified Author, and I've been doing training, performance improvement, and professional development for almost 25 years now in one form or another - at the local and job level, at the corporate level, as a US Army Maintenance Chief, as an educator at University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as an independent contractor, and as now an eLearning developer. My background covers both the instructional design and Lectora development sides of the fence. I've written award-winning training programs for the US Army, Department of Defense, US Army Signal Command, and US Joint Forces Command.
Breakout Session: Turn your 508 Courses into 508-GREAT Courses with the eLearning Brothers
Many developers hear the words “accessible,” "WCAG," or “508” and just cringe, but that shouldn't be the case. Understanding what 508 compliance is (and what it is not) and knowing the tools you have in Lectora will help you create and deploy courses that are both fun and engaging for ALL your learners. We'll experience a course using assistive technology devices, look at a few resources available to you as developers, and then pull up some content and both jazz it up AND make it accessible at the same time. And with a few standard workflow changes, you'll be able to do the same for any course you create.
