Create Accessible Learning using dominKnow | ONE - Training Course

Create Accessible Learning using dominKnow | ONE

Accessible digital learning content provides a richer learning experience for all users and should form the basis of your content development best practice and design standards. Public Sector organisations must be level AA compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. From October 2024, digital accessibility will be monitored to WCAG 2.2. This includes learning content.

Course Overview

This dominKnow | ONE training course will introduce content authors and instructional designers to the theories and definitions underpinning accessible learning content design, as well as the standards and regulations that must be followed to create WCAG compliant content. It is recommended that delegates complete a short, self-paced Variables Basics for Accessibility eLearning course prior to attending this instructor-led training.

Each session will include a series of short demonstrations of an accessible learning course created by Larmer Brown, teaching delegates how to apply WCAG 2.1 and WCAG 2.2 standards to their course design and development. The importance of assistive technology in the design and quality assurance stages of development will also be covered, providing delegates with additional tools and resources to support the development of accessible learning content.

Sessions one and two will end with a task for delegates to complete prior to commencement of the next session. These tasks will allow delegates to practise elements of their learning in the dominKnow | ONE tool. One-to-one support will be available between sessions as required.

Additional resources and links will be shared so delegates can continue their learning outside of the virtual sessions. These will be included in the PowerPoint slides and will be shared before each session, along with a recording.

Once delegates have completed the three virtual sessions, they will have access to a self-paced knowledge base within dominKnow I ONE. This knowledge base will allow delegates to consolidate their learning and will provide them with performance support as they continue to develop accessible learning content.
