Level Access is offering a one hour webinar today at 2:00pm ET, "Making Education Websites Accessible to People with Disabilities". Here is the description:
Today, much more education is happening online. Online universities offer students from all walks of life the opportunity to earn college degrees. And many more traditional schools are using technology to support their programs and services. For students with disabilities, online resources remove many of the physical and social barriers to education, like coping with school facilities that are not physically accessible, carrying books, or coping with social anxiety or OCD.
This webinar will cover:
* Common accessibility barriers for students
* Current ADA requirements for educational institutions
* Costs of retrofitting vs. building in accessibility from the start and phasing in with website and mobile app updates
* Tips for meeting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0)
* Whether or not you need an accessibility vendor and advice for finding the right vendor
