Demystifying 508 Compliance Parameters for eLearning Projects
October 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
There’s a lot of subjectivity when it comes to interpreting 508 compliance for eLearning. Although the law was enacted in 1998, interpretation and implementation vary widely across organizations. This can cause confusion and distress among developers and project managers as they zigzag across what can be an accessibility landmine hoping to come out whole on the other side.
Many eLearning professionals take for granted that their version of 508 compliancy is universal. However, it’s not. The applicable provisions and how they are implemented in your training may be up for interpretation, resulting in a need to retrofit aspects of your training and have your budget bursting at the seams.
In this webinar you’ll explore how you can mitigate possible project disaster by asking the right questions, identifying key stakeholders, and ensuring your team is educated before disaster strikes. We’ll identify proven, real-world strategies to keep your eLearning project compliant and on track.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
– How to identify key questions that will align you and your clients’ interpretations of compliancy to avoid confusion
– How to address 508 compliancy issues that may conflict with instructional standards or technical limitations
– How to explore compliancy considerations for different types of training mediums, such as traditional eLearning outputs, video, podcasts, and mobile apps
