Providing a course overview, offering accessible and relevant content, encouraging meaningful interaction, and challenging students to think critically are all elements that contribute to a quality online learning experience. However, designing for quality may feel like a moving target and thus an elusive goal to achieve. To address this, the Instructional Design team at UCF has created a Quality and High Quality online course review process based on our own practices as well as nationally recognized standards. Session presenters will showcase select items included in the Quality and High Quality course review process and describe beneficial outcomes from a faculty member’s perspective. A key resource will be the Quality and High Quality items which participants can use to meet their unique needs.
In this presentation of Creating Accessible Online Content, Jacob Bates, Techranger Team Lead, and Jesse McBride, Techranger, discuss some of the best practices for designing accessible content. During the course of this presentation, Jacob and Jesse will also demonstrate CDL’s Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool (UDOIT) that enables faculty to identify accessibility issues in Webcourses@UCF.
