Friendly, Open Learning Spaces

Instructional design

What is a pecha kucha?

Engage all of your learners with an environment that is friendly and open! Use materials and resources that are accessible--and learn about what accessibility means beyond just ADA compliance. We'll discuss:

  • what it means to be an accessible environment
  • what it means to have a friendly learning environment
  • best practices of using Moodle, cloud-based systems, and Web tools within the confines of ADA
  • reducing the amount of proprietary software that students are required to purchase
  • reducing the number of files students must download
  • using multimedia that's truly accessible and friendly
  • streamlining content to ensure ease-of-use
  • using visuals appropriately
A number of resources will be shared during this presentation, including great multimedia sites that work well in Moodle.
