Accessibility Considerations in the World of Online Training and Learning

True accessibility is more about removing barriers and creating an inclusive environment that ensures effective learning for all.

In this eBook, Adobe guides the L&D expert towards a culture of accessible education and inclusion. Only through this culture can an organization hope to make its workforce future-proof.

Considerations for eBook Accessibility in the World of Online Training and Learning

This eBook is a collection of articles and resources, but it can be broken down into these 6 segments.

1. Why is accessibility important in the context of adult education?

This guide starts with an important question: Why is accessibility important in adult education? We must answer this question before anything else. Ultimately, accessibility is about getting the right perspective. The point is to understand that by excluding some of your employees from your learning culture, you are essentially damaging your training initiative.

2. How many people are affected?

The next chapter basically examines whether there is a market for accessibility. Accessibility is a problem for a much larger segment of the population than one would expect, and that means that not only is there a market for it, but there is also an obligation for companies and organizations to meet that need.

3. The business value of inclusion

The following section of this eBook explains the value of inclusion from a business perspective. There is a whole network of resources devoted to understanding and harnessing the benefits of the diversity of disabilities. With the right guidance, any organization can translate their diversity and inclusion initiatives into real growth and use them to work toward their business goals.

4. Why should companies care about accessibility?

Accessibility is important to businesses for four important reasons. First and foremost, it is important to provide opportunities for people with disabilities that are equal to everyone else’s. Second, organizations are required by law to strive for improved accessibility. Third, accessibility includes innovative technologies. And finally, it’s good for business because it helps you reach new customers and explore different markets.

5. Challenges for virtual learning environments

The following chapter focuses on the challenges that are specific to virtual learning environments. Similar to other specialty programs, VILT requires special considerations about accessibility. This chapter also explains how to design and run an accessible VILT course and what assistive technologies can help people with disabilities.

6. The Open University Case Study: An Inspirational Model for All

The final chapter of this eBook is a case study of the Open University and how it became the epitome of inclusive training. This case study will inspire and motivate you, but it will also help you understand in a practical way how and why an inclusive approach to online training and learning works.
