Is your course content designed for the modern online student? Students in 2019 expect an education that is as tech-savvy as they are. These seven questions will help you determine if your online content is up-to-date and well-designed.
The most successful strategy for creating an equitable tech experience is the use of a platform that employs an accessible design in the earliest content development stages. CourseArc is dedicated to ensuring content is accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. CourseArc allows easy creation of WCAG 2.1 AA compliant content and assessments.
Idaho Digital Learning will be using CourseArc to create accessible content that is developed collaboratively and shared within the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance.
CourseArc's intuitive approach to course development makes creating engaging and interactive online courses simple, and accessibility is never an afterthought. The recently released WCAG 2.1 requirements spell out how to ensure content is accessible for all learners.

The growing presence of technology in the classroom provides education leaders and teachers opportunities to customize learning content from the district level to the student level. A well-developed education technology product also allows a teacher to play to his or her own strengths, as well as the students', by combining traditional teaching methods with technology for blended learning.
Classrooms of all types, traditional and virtual, K-12, higher ed, and professional, use technology every day to prepare students through online learning. When used strategically and creatively, educational technology can provide meaningful opportunities for students. But instructors and administrators must make sure the digital learning is accessible to all students, including those with disabilities.
