Making eLearning Accessible for Everyone
Why is Web Accessibility and WCAG important?
Accessibility in eLearning involves the creation of a piece of online learning that can be experienced by as many people as possible. It is common that government agencies focus the most intently on accessibility, as do higher education institutions and corporations, but it’s a good idea for everyone to follow accessibility best practices. eLearning is a fantastic way to keep your staff trained and up-to-date, but what if the user is vision impaired, hearing impaired or has poor motor skills?
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, or WCAG, is a global set of guidelines followed around the world, to ensure that online content can be easily accessed and utilised by users that experience that content through a variety of means, including screen-readers, specialised hardware, even using closed-captioning, and visual design to accommodate low vision and colour blindness.
