Work on accessibility issues with course files as a group and have fun making our campus more inclusive for everyone! Registration required: Blackboard Ally Fix Your Content Day Fixathon
Thursday, May 19th marks the 11th 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 the more than One Billion people with disabilities/impairments.”
As part of our campus-wide commitment to inclusive education, and in celebration of GAAD, we will also participate in the Blackboard Ally “Fix your Content Day Challenge"!" For 24-hours, we’ll be on a mission to fix as many accessibility issues in course files as we can. At the end of the day, the campus with the most files improved will be recognized and awarded a prize.
How can you help? Start clicking those Low (red) and Medium (orange) accessibility score 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 a 100% accessibility score, but improvement is what counts!
You are also invited to join us for a Fixathon on Thursday, May 19, 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. Registration is required.
