ILCCO Accessibility Course

ILCCO Accessibility Best Practices

Illinois Community Colleges Online has a self-paced course that will help further your understanding of accessibility. In addition, you will have the opportunity to apply your understanding by making materials accessible with templates and helpful guides. This course was created by the Accessibility Subcommittee of Illinois Community Colleges Online. Some course information was taken from the Breaking Down Barriers Workshop held in 2021 while other information was contributed by each member of the Accessibility Subcommittee and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).
