EASI Online Courses - Fall Schedule Now Available

Dear Colleague,

The SUNY Center for Professional Development and EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information) are pleased to offer the following online courses:

Barrier-free Web Design
Start Date: October 5th
Web pages can be created using Universal Design principles permitting their use by people with different browsers, different connection speeds, mobile phones, tablets, etc, and by people with disabilities using Adaptive computer technology. They can also be created in ways that exclude many of the above users. Barrier-free Web Design will prepare you to create web pages that are visually appealing and still permit full access by users with various technologies and by those with disabilities. You will be able to look at some of the best webinars that EASI has given by experts related to the topics. Hands on activities are also included to those who consider them useful, but they are not mandatory to completing the course.

Barrier-free e-Learning
Start Date: November 2nd
Barrier-free E-learning has been significantly updated and also enriched with new multimedia. The course now is based on the realization that course content authors, faculty and instructional designers, are placing that content inside a courseware or learning management system. Most of the Web accessibility issues relate to that interface, and only a few accessibility features are relevant to the actual course content. This makes creating accessible content much simpler. The revisions focus on a limited set of accessibility issues and also stress how to achieve accessibility using familiar software that designers are already using.

Train the Trainer
Start Date: December 7th
Computer technology has the potential to provide the most level learning space and working space in history for people with disabilities. However, many users arrive on campus or at work with inadequate training on this technology. Either the K-12 system failed to provide them with the appropriate tools and training, or they may have only recently received the disability. They will need help in identifying the technology that will enable them to achieve more independence and need training to use it effectively. Your institution will need to have someone equipped to provide this training. The information in Train the Trainer will provide a staff person with the know-how to provide this support.

The courses are asynchronous, month-long and taught entirely over the Internet.
