One of the challenges faculty face, in improving the accessibility of their online courses, is to understand and locate accessibility problems in the first place. To assist in this, a programming team at the University of Central Florida developed an accessibility issue reporting and repair tool for Canvas: UDOIT. This session will explain some of the common accessibility issues in online courses and demonstrate how to use UDOIT to quickly find and repair such issues in a Canvas course. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop to the session so that they can try UDOIT out!
Migrating from one LMS to another can be a division or department’s worst nightmare, or it can be a golden opportunity to dramatically improve the standards of your course offerings. RAO took the latter tack and used the migration as the means to bring the courses into conformity through universal design, address ADA compliance issues, eliminate ‘legacy’ technical issues, and replace ancillary software by using the features of the new LMS. The undertaking also gave us the opportunity to build even stronger community/team spirit with our instructors.
In this research-based, interactive session, representatives of a small university whose very mission is based on the dignity of each individual person share tools and techniques for how to make online learning fully human, particularly with regard to instructor presence.
