08/04 7 Steps to Create More Accessible Course Content: Accessibility is a shared responsibility among all who create digital content on our campus. As instructors who post a great deal of digital content (documents, presentations, websites, videos, etc.) for students, we want to take the guesswork out of accessibility by showing you 7 basic steps to follow that will make sure all students can access your course content at the same time in an equitable manner. Be sure to join us on Zoom for Back to the Basics of Blackboard Accessibility where we will build on these 7 basic steps.
