Description

Delta’s “10 Days to Accessible Content” experience is a training course that walks faculty through all the steps to meet the 16 standards of Section D in the CVC-OEI rubric. The course will consist of 10 lessons that introduce the standards, explain why they matter, and show faculty how to meet them proactively through sound course design practices. Lessons will be followed by an opportunity to practice the skills hands-on in an actual Canvas page and demonstrate competency.

When done, faculty will have mastered the basics of creating accessible course content.

Satisfactory Completion

Faculty who complete this training program will earn a badge and a certificate of completion. Participants must finish all tasks with a grade of at least 75% to earn a badge and certificate, and a $200.00 stipend. Faculty may also claim 10 hours of flex. 

Testimonials

I would recommend all faculty to take this course, whether they are already familiar with the accessibility standards or not. I was already familiar with the accessibility standards from taking the Course Design class, but I did enjoy the opportunity to take a closer look at the different standards and to dive into them with hands-on activities. I did learn quite a few little tricks that I was not aware of.

I'd recommend other faculties to register for this training to learn and re-evaluate their courses on Canvas to ensure that all course materials are accessible for all students.  This training also can be a mandatory training for new faculties.

I would recommend it! Easy setup and very user-friendly.

All faculty who teach in the classroom, hybrid or online need to take this course. It should be mandatory.
