A Strategy for Making Online Content Accessible

Recent lawsuits in higher education have sparked movements to make online content accessible. Michigan State University recently approved a policy for the University’s web accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.0 AA). In this webinar you will learn about the five-year plan for meeting accessibility guidelines set forth by the Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Michigan State University Extension. Examples of how we are changing our processes to make online content accessible will be shared, in addition to tools that you could use to make your own content accessible.

The webinar will be presented by Gwyn Shelle, Instructional Technology Specialist with Michigan State University Extension.

The webinar is sponsored by the Association for Communication Excellence in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Life and Human Sciences.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
