Why I am Prioritizing eLearning Accessibility?
I am an advocate of inclusive learning, which means I believe everyone deserves equal opportunities to learn regardless of barriers such as disability, location, or ethnicity. I’m constantly looking for ways to make eLearning more accessible for those with disabilities, and there are many ways to do that. Here are some specific ways I am incorporating accessibility into my eLearning courses and why it’s important to me.
Everyone deserves to learn
No matter who you are, what your circumstances are, or where you live, you have a right to education. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to quality education. This is why I believe that it is important to design eLearning courses that are accessible to everyone.
Not being accessible makes me a bad person
When I design eLearning, I want everyone to be able to use and benefit from it. That's why accessibility is so important to me. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same level of ability when it comes to using technology. That's why it's important for me to design my elearning courses with accessibility in mind. By making my courses accessible, I'm ensuring that everyone can learn and benefit from them. And that's something that's important to me.
Not being accessible is illegal
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), if your business is providing a service to the public, you must make sure that service is accessible to people with disabilities. This includes online services and content. If your website or eLearning courses are not accessible, you could be in violation of the ADA.
Not being accessible is bad for business
When creating digital content, it's important to consider accessibility from the start. Making your content accessible is not only the right thing to do, but it's also good for business. By making your content accessible, you can reach a larger audience and create a more inclusive learning environment.
We need more blind (and dyslexic, and autistic, etc.) entrepreneurs
In a world that is increasingly digital, it is more important than ever to make sure that everyone has access to education and information. That's why I'm committed to making eLearning accessible to everyone, regardless of ability.
