All new online courses will be developed in compliance with accessibility guidelines. In order to meet this goal, a course style guide containing general guidelines and a Master Course Template were implemented in early 2015. The Instructional Designer Team Manager and our group of instructional designers will work with subject matter experts to create web-based course material that meets the web accessibility standards and practices detailed in the WCAG 2.0 guidelines (AA level).
In August 2015, all CCCOnline instructors completed the required Web Accessibility training administered through the Colorado Community College System office. The training consisted of five modules related to accessibility awareness and accessibility mechanics for creating documents, images, audio and video, and HTML pages.
