Designing for all Learners

When instructional designers and web developers hear the phrase, "designing for all users", they often think...508 Compliance. But what if you began to think outside of the box, in fact, throw the box away. Designing for every learner is more than meting the needs of the blind or visually impaired and deaf or hard of hearing community. It is about designing for knowledge retention and increasing accessibility by making content accessible for all learners, no matter their device, capabilities, and environment. In addition to sharing some best practices, we will brainstorm some techniques, ideas and improvements for your current projects.

Drucilla Owenby currently works as an Educational Specialist, Instructional Designer and Technologist for Educational Service Center, Region 20. Her role encompasses the frequent use of instructional technology to design, develop and deploy elearning for professional development. She also serves as per-course faculty for Missouri State University Department of Computer Information Systems, teaching Web Design and Development and Advanced Microcomputer Applications.
