Accessibility from the Ground Up: A Guide to Making eLearning Barrier-Free

Pamela S. Hogle, Elearning Guild

If we create content that is accessible from the ground up—if we build in ease of access and assistance for people who are new to technology, are English-language learners, have trouble distinguishing colors, need high-contrast designs, are hard of hearing, or use screen readers to navigate or access text—all learners will benefit. Accessible content is easier for everyone to use.

Start Building Accessible Web Applications Today

Marcy Sutton, Egghead.io

Accessibility (or a11y) is an important but often neglected in the world of web development. Many developers find themselves coding user interfaces without any knowledge of keyboard or screen reader requirements.

This course will introduce you to accessibility through hands-on, technical examples that are way more effective than reading 10-year-old static web content.
