Description:
In this hands-on workshop, learn how to design materials that are flexible and usable for a variety of technologies, that work well for many students on many devices. The workshop will focus on a few tips for formatting your PDFs, Word Documents, and PowerPoint Presentations. Students are accessing course materials using a wide variety of operating systems, mobile devices, and software that allows them to listen to text, highlight key points for a paper, or manipulate documents on screens of all sizes. Student diversity is also greater than ever, including English Language Learners, non-traditional students such as veterans, and students with disabilities. Making course materials usable and accessible gives all students greater flexibility in their learning.
