LondonLearning NewsLearning Technologies

Making learning resources accessible is on the programme at the upcoming LTDX 2.0 conference taking place from 21 June to 2 July.

Making learning content accessible for people with disabilities and impairments is considered ‘the right thing’ to do by the majority of L&D practitioners. So why is it that most learning resources created today remain inaccessible and risk excluding an estimated 12% to 26% of our learners? 

Elearning accessibility expert and author Susi Miller debunks the top 10 eLearning accessibility myths and demonstrates how accessible learning content really is better for everyone. 

Conference chair, Donald H Taylor, pointed out in an interview for Learning News: “One of the things we discovered during lockdown was people can work from anywhere, but are we making it possible for people to learn equally? No, we're not.”

Susi Miller’s session, 'Busting the top 10 eLearning accessibility myths', takes place during week two of the conference, Monday 28 June at 09:30 BST. In this webinar she explores:

  • How accessible learning content enhances rather than harms the learning experience for non-disabled learners.

  • Strategies to ensure accessibility isn’t time-consuming and costly.

  • Why digital accessibility is important beyond the public sector.

  • How authoring tool providers can support eLearning practitioners in creating accessible content.

  • How accessibility standards can be a help rather than a hindrance.
