  • Can you have Media in an Accessible eLearning course?
    In courses built with CourseAvenue - Yes! We can't vouch for other vendors ;). "Media" can be a variety of different things. In CourseAvenue's world this means you can add graphics, audio, video, assessment questions (e.g. fill-in the blank, ordered list, matching, multiple choice) and a varity of other interactions (e.g. choose 'this' see 'that', learner driven navigation, etc.). Even a crossword puzzle!
  • My current authoring tool has a "make accessible" button so I am o.k. - right?"
    Ummm - not very likely. eLearning tool vendors started adding this little "make accessible" check box and very little was known as to what checking the box or un-checking it actually did. So what happens if you have 8 things on the page (e.g. links, graphics, buttons, etc.) and you check the "make accessible" box on all of them? Who knows. One thing we noticed was there was no "make compliant" button.
  • What is the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)?
    The ADA is a comprehensive anti-discrimination law prohibiting discrimination against individuals with disabilities in physical spaces. While the ADA doesn't explicitly address digital accessibility, recent U.S. court rulings confirm its applicability to the digital realm, making it essential for both physical and online spaces to be inclusive.
  • What is the difference between ADA and Section 508?
    Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act mandates accessible information and communication technology (ICT) for federal agencies. In contrast, the ADA focuses on anti-discrimination in physical spaces. Despite distinctions, recent legal precedents assert the ADA's relevance to digital accessibility, highlighting the need for businesses and agencies to ensure both physical and digital spaces are inclusive. While overlapping, ADA compliance and Section 508 standards work best together, guiding organizations in providing equitable access to online content. Learn more about the differences between the ADA and Section 508 to navigate compliance effectively.
