Gavin Henrick, CEO and Co-Founder of Brickfield Education Labs, and Laia Joana Canet will chat about the importance of Accessibility for Moodle content, discuss what to focus on, and share tips to improve the accessibility of your course content.
Learning about accessibility is something that everyone can benefit from, no matter how you work digitally. This session will be valuable whether you have already started your journey to improve the accessibility of your courses or if you are just starting. We would love to see you there!
This webinar will be in English and will be a maximum of 45 minutes. There will be a Q&A at the end!
