> Accessible Blackboard: Part 1- JoAnna Hunt, Senior Designer, User Experience
> Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at 11am & 8pm (Eastern Time)
> Learning Management Systems have the potential to improve the quality of the interactions between teachers and students, but they can also present serious barriers to students with disabilities. As demand for learning management software increases so does the importance of delivering accessible software. In this session we will talk about Blackboard's commitment and approach to accessibility, show you examples of what is working well within Blackboard Learn and talk about features that can be used to improve the experience for students with disabilities.
> Accessible Blackboard: Part 2- Beth Stinson, Manager, Content Development
> Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 11am & 8pm (Eastern Time)
> In part one of this series, you learned about the importance of building accessible learning management systems and Blackboard's commitment and approach to accessibility. Teachers and instructional designers have an equally important part to play to ensure that their online content and learning experiences are accessible to all students. This session aims to increase awareness of the different accessibility challenges people face, and provide you with some universal design techniques that you can use when building content and teaching online with Blackboard.
