When:  Mar 27, 2018 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ET)

Presenter: Gaeir Dietrich, High Tech Center Training Unit, California Community Colleges

A refresh to Section 508, the part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that speaks directly to the accessibility of information and communication technology (ICT) was released last year, and the final rule went into effect March 20, 2017. All agencies to whom the refresh applies were required to comply by January 18, 2018. Whether the law applies directly to your institution or not, experts agree that it helps to set a baseline for accessibility. Join us to take a look at the law’s impact on higher education. Exactly what is Section 508? Does it apply to you, and how is it affected by the refresh? What do you need to know? Learn how Section 504 and 508 can work together to enhance access.
