[Athen] Resources for training

Hello Lorraine,
I usually give this presentation to people who are just beginning. It is technically for "developers" but starts off slow because most developers are coming from a background of nothing as far as accessibility. You can use anything you want from it. I'm at Kent State so we are a state university that gets both state and federal funding.

I also, highly recommend having people use the WAVE toolbar and download and just try something like NVDA. From my experience, it really helps people to see what is wrong and how a screen reader and other AT works. (those are both in the slides). Let me know if you have any questions.

Dear List,

I am trying to get information together for people who have no background in accessibility and technology and wanted to know what online course or information you recommend I point them to. This is for a group of non-technical people who want to get up to speed:

The areas I am looking for are:

* Web accessibility - beginning

* Distance education accessibility

* WCAG and 508

* Social media

Thanks for your help
