Kineo Conversations: accessibility in digital learning
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.
