Ball State University is committed to digital accessibility. Planning for accessibility in your Canvas course is not only the right thing to do; applying accessibility best practices also meet requirements laid out by federal and state laws. Knowing where to begin can be challenging. Join Ball State Instructional Consultant Sue Husted in this studio event and discover techniques and tips to make your course more accessible.
In this two-hour studio, you will:
Recognize the Rich Content Editor features that improve readability
Recall techniques to author accessible Canvas content, including text-alternatives, text, links, and other page elements
Identify opportunities to improve usability and accessibility of links in Canvas pages and modules
Locate the Accessibility Checker in the Canvas Rich Content Editor
Curate resources to improve accessibility in documents not created in Canvas
What is a Studio?
Join Online and Strategic Learning as you prepare to work on your course or course material in real time! Our new studios are virtual spaces to watch quick demos, practice a tool, and ask questions of your peers and our team. Some studios are limited to a first-come, first-served basis. Studios will feature developing a Canvas course template, crafting rubrics with a recommended template, and practicing advanced engagement strategies with assigned discussion roles.
