Courseware Management Systems, Accessibility versus Usability

This presentation, by EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information), takes the form of a Web-based, interactive, voice conference and provides skills to make online educational content more accessible. It will demonstrate the difference between accessibility and usability and will include video clips showing how complex courseware systems pose a problem for users with disabilities.

The event lasts 60-90 minutes and will combine a presentation with the presenter explaining step-by-step procedures while displaying text and graphic Web pages demonstrating what is described. Participants can use voice or text chat to ask questions.

Requirements: Windows, a recent version of Internet Explorer, sound card, speakers and a microphone.
