Webinar: Digital Accessibility on Your College Website

July 17, 2019

2 p.m. Eastern  •  1 p.m. Central 
12 noon Mountain  •  11 a.m. Pacific 

Are the digital materials on your college website in compliance with accessibility standards outlined in sections 504 and 508 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act? Many colleges have become well acquainted with these ADA standards, but they’re still struggling to fully meet them.

The good news is there are simple processes you can follow to ensure your college’s online presence is meeting these requirements and, thus, limit your exposure to legal action. This 90-minute webinar will help equip you with the knowledge to get started on a clear plan for approaching digital accessibility.

Specific learning outcomes will include:

  • Gain a full understanding of key areas where online destinations fail to meet standards.
  • Understand the WCAG 2.1 guidelines and its four key components.
  • Identify the necessary elements of an effective digital accessibility policy.
  • Develop a clear message for various target audiences using a communication platform formula.
  • Apply messaging and create compliant document assets, specifically PDF and Microsoft Word.
