CCC | @ONE – Embedding Content into Accessible Canvas Pages

Thursday, March 21, 2024`11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Participants will examine best practices in online course design, with a focus on how to embed content into Canvas pages that are accessible, thereby creating an inclusive learning environment. We will go over embedding reading (including OER resources), images, videos, and PowerPoint files; and how to provide clear instructions on how students should interact with the content. Additionally, we will cover how to “chunk” pages with properly formatted headings, add appropriate alt text to images, and properly format lists and links.

She has over a decade of online teaching experience and loves working with faculty on effective online course design and accessibility. Her passion for instructional design took a leap in 2018 when she put her online oceanography classes through the CVC Course Design Academy, the precursor to local POCR.

She has a strong background in universal design and accessibility, HTML coding, humanizing online learning, authentic assessments, and more.
