Webinars to discuss online accessibility for students with disabilities

By Staff

The online environment has the potential to be a more accessible infrastructure for learning than face-to-face classes. This is true for all students, including those who have disabilities. But when online environments are technologically “inaccessible,” they can inadvertently create more barriers for students with disabilities – making learning more difficult or even impossible.

The Auraria Library has announced two online webinar sessions to discuss current and proposed legislation supporting the needs of all students, particularly those with visual, auditory, cognitive and motor disabilities in online environments.

Sessions are set for Sept. 6 and 8. The webinars will include best practices, consequences of lack of accessibility, technology availability, suggestions for creating an accessible website, and benefits and challenges of moving toward a more universally accessible online environment.
