E-learning Forum

E-Learning Forum: VLE Accessibility Requirements

Colleagues are invited to attend the first E-Learning Forum of 2019-20 on Tuesday 24th September 2019, 12 noon to 1pm in the UELT seminar room, Canterbury Campus.

In this session we will take a closer look at the new Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations and the impact they have upon our use of Moodle. On the 23rd September, all content on our websites and within Moodle will need to be accessible. In this session, we will talk specifically about the challenges this poses and will offer practical tips and suggestions for good accessible content design within Moodle and the documents added to it. 

We will demonstrate work undertaken so far to make Moodle accessible by design, including our use of Blackboard Ally, and will talk in detail how the new regulations impact all content creators in Moodle.

Co-delivered by the E-Learning team and Student Support and Wellbeing, this session may be of interest to academic and professional services staff who create and share any type of content through Moodle and for those interested in digital accessibility and inclusion.

To register for this session please complete the online booking form.
