Kineo Conversations: accessibility in digital learning

At least one billion people, or 15% of the world’s population, are living with a recognised disability (WHO), and in the UK it’s estimated that 20% of the working age population (House of Commons Library) have some form of disability. What’s more, as the working population ages many more people acquire impairments which they wouldn’t necessarily consider a disability but can cause accessibility challenges. 

Be honest: can you say, hand-on-heart, that your digital learning content is fully accessible to all learners? Or that you consistently consider accessibility as a core component of each elearning project? 

If the answer is no, then don't worry, you're not alone. This is a challenge most organisations face but get it right and everyone will benefit. 

In this Kineo Conversations episode we tackle the topic of accessibility, as we’re joined by:

  • Susi Miller – an accessibility expert from eLaHub, Susi has recently published her book: Designing Accessible Learning Content - A practical guide to applying best-practice accessibility standards to L&D resources.
  • Mark D’Aquin from SAP - with a workforce in the hundreds of thousands, SAP wanted an approach that would deliver consistent learning experiences to meet the needs of today’s modern learner - to provide personalised, engaging, and accessible learning experiences at the point of need, on any device. Deploying Kineo’s Edition of the Adapt Authoring Tool, their award-winning solution makes learning accessible to all. 

Watch the webinar now as we discuss:

  • Why is accessibility so important in digital learning?
  • What accessibility in elearning actually means – and the things that are often overlooked
  • How technology can help, and what you should expect from an accessible authoring tool
  • How SAP implemented accessibility across their elearning programmes, so you can do the same
