Even More Open: Inclusive Design in Open Educational Resources
Since the inception of Affordable Learning Georgia in 2014, accessibility has been a priority within the creation and sharing of open educational resources (OER). However, the world’s definitions of disability and accessibility have changed since then: open resources should meet a diverse range of learners where they are, with our design matching their interaction needs. Jeff Gallant, Program Director of Affordable Learning Georgia, will demonstrate new methods in inclusive design, from things you can do yourself within Microsoft Word to ALG’s new inclusive web-based platform for open textbooks, OpenALG.

Oct 27, 2021 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
