Dear Colleagues,

A free Coursera MOOC developed by faculty and staff at CU-Boulder was recently launched on: "Inclusive Design for Online Education" (Courera URL: https://www.coursera.org/learn/inclusive-design)

Here is a course description and other info. For more information contact hkramer@colorado.edu.

About this course: This course provides instruction and strategies to support you in developing a course that is inclusive to students with a wide range of abilities, including students with disabilities. We cover effective practices to increase inclusion and avoid some of the common accessibility issues that can arise in an online course. In particular, Basics of Inclusive Design Online covers course organization, the accessibility of Microsoft Office and PDF documents, making course instruction pages accessible, captioning of videos, making images accessible, and designing for learning differences. We also discuss how inclusive course materials can help all students, including students without disabilities. This course will appeal to those who want both a broad overview of the range of accessibility considerations and also a step-by-step guide of how to check documents for accessibility, caption a video, or prepare course content for non-visual users.

Who is this class for: Anyone interested in making their courses more accessible, from faculty designing their own courses to course designers, should find this class  helpful. No specific prerequisites are needed although some knowledge of Learning Management Systems and Microsoft Office products will help you get the most out of this course.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
