Learn about accessible content with online trainings this summer

Commit to making your webpages, videos, course materials, work documents, and other content equally accessible to all who need it with the help of the Office of IT Accessibility (OITA).

OITA is offering several training opportunities throughout the summer that are available to Rutgers students, staff, and faculty.

Workshops such as “content accessibility 101” and “web accessibility 101” can provide you with the basics, while more specific trainings like “social media accessibility” and “PowerPoint accessibility” dive into detail on how to ensure accessibility when using common tools. There is also a workshop for instructors that highlights accessibility with learning management systems (LMS).
