Accessibility Workshop: Captioning Course Resources
12:00pm-1:00pm, Sverdrup 205
Videos have become an integral part of how we teach, create webpages with multimedia content, as well as provide information during events. Making sure these videos are captioned for students, faculty, staff, and visitors on campus is essential in creating a welcoming and accessible environment. In this session, we’ll address the why-to behind captioning, and well as the how-to so you can have the resources to caption your video content. Bring earbuds if you have them! Sponsored by the CLASS office and the E-Learning Team.

Accessibility Workshop: Creating Accessible Documents
3:00pm-4:00pm, Foss 22B
Creating accessible documents is not only a good idea to ensure all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to our campus have equal access, but as a result of recent changes in the legal world, it’s now the law for us to do so on our campus too. We all have the ability to make our documents accessible to everyone, once we know how to do it. In this session, we’ll go over how to create accessible Microsoft Word and Google Docs. We’ll provide easy steps to create these documents, provide resources for accessible document creation, and feature tools to help check if you are on the right track. In addition, we’ll talk about how to make your Moodle courses accessible as well. Bring a document or Moodle site, and your computer. At the end of the session we will have work time practice these skills. Sponsored by the CLASS office and the E-Learning Team.
Adjunct instructors on contract in the current semester who attend this event are eligible for a $50 stipend. Contact email@example.com after these events to ensure that your attendance was noted!
