Online learning is an effective way of supporting students when attendance is disrupted. However, where online learning is implemented without knowledge or awareness of digital accessibility, it can create unintended barriers. Basic accessibility practices are vital to ensuring all students benefit from online materials.
Among the wealth of self-access training materials included on the ETF’s Enhance Digital Teaching Platform are a range of modules focused around accessibility and dealing with difference and diversity. By becoming familiar with the key ideas around digital accessibility and inclusion you significantly increase the chance of your online experiences being more effective for more students.
