W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are the industry standard for web accessibility but can be difficult to understand for those of us who aren’t web developers or fluent in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript, Yet, WCAG 2 applies to every university’s website, learning management system, digital content, and every digital tool and software purchased. Disability services professionals must know WCAG 2 in order to teach others, influence policy, and ensure the accessibility of university courses and websites. This webinar will cover the basics of WCAG 2 (2.0 & 2.1) in simple, easier-to-understand terminology. Join us to really learn what WCAG is, why it exists, its history, what the success criteria are, and what you’ll need to know about 2.1 in plain, understandable English.
