Hello Deb,

They’re a little old, but here’s some training materials to get you started: http://htctu.net/trainings/manuals/tutmain.htm

Last updated 2014, but still relevant for your needs.

If you’re willing, I ALWAYS need help updating my Trello board of diverse accessible technologies. Let me know if you’re willing to contribute and I can add you to the board. https://trello.com/b/rirGA3kZ/accessible-technology-software

I’m not sure if there’s an ATHENPro Slack channel…The free slack usage works until 10k messages are created and then locks you out. Or we can go the old school route and do IRC (Slack no longer supports IRC).

Hello Everyone!

I’ve been off the list for a bit, moving and changing jobs. My employer has changed, but not my basic role – striving for universally designed and accessible learning experiences in higher ed.

I’d love to work with individuals on this list, so that we can fulfill learners’ needs and eliminate potential barriers. I hope to develop some long-term partnerships.

I don’t want to tie up the listserv, so please email me off list with thoughts and information that you feel would help to serve your learners better and create more universally designed and accessible learning experiences.

Speaking of… does anyone have a good guide/guidelines to writing alt text for higher education that they would be willing to share?

Thanks much.

What is “essential for some” is almost always “good for all” (Meyer, Rose, and Gordon, 2014).
