Moodle & Accessibility Brown Bag on July 26, 2016

Join us for a Moodle and Accessibility Brown Bag on July 26 from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. EDT. The event is free and availableĀ online using the Zoom video conferencing software.

During the brown bag Ken Newquist (Lafayette College) and Jedidiah Rex (Beloit College) be discussing best practices for designing usable, accessible courses in Moodle. They will be showcasing a badly-designed, inaccessible, scroll-of-death style course that was created at Moodle Hack/Doc Fest at Butler University in June 2016. They’ll then walk through several improved versions of that course.

They will have a brief Q&A between each course so participants can discuss their own problematic courses, best practices, and brainstorm other solutions to the usability and accessibility issues in the example course.

The brown bag will conclude with a discussion of possible next steps regarding Moodle usability and accessibility within the CLAMP community.

The presentation will be given using Zoom. Register for the brown bag using this link:
