Work on accessibility issues with course files as a group during this come-and-go web conference and have fun making our campus more inclusive for everyone!


Thursday, May 20th marks the annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day. GAAD’s purpose is “to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.” As part of our campus-wide commitment to inclusive education, and in celebration of GAAD, we are participating in the Blackboard Ally “Fix your Content Day!" For 24-hours, we’ll be on a mission to fix as many accessibility issues with course files as we can. At the end of the day, the campus with the most files fixed will be recognized and awarded a prize.


How can you help? Start clicking those red and orange indicators in your courses and fix as many files as you can. Focus on images that need a description and Word documents to start. Aim for 100%, but improvement is what counts!


You are also invited to join us for a Fixathon on Thursday, May 20, 2:00-4:00 p.m. During this come-and-go web conference, we'll work on accessibility issues with course files as a group and have fun making our campus more inclusive for everyone. While the Fixathon is a UA community event, keep an eye on our public Facebook page, where we'll be going live throughout the day as we fix files.
