The 2018 refresh of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 required adoption of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, level AA, as the standard of expected accessibility by any college or university receiving federal funds. The creation and publication of accessible digital content aligned to these standards (including web pages, documents, images, videos, and audio) can be challenging across any institution. This session will unpack various strategies and campaigns, including the Choose Accessible Learning Materials (C.A.L.M.) initiative, which illuminate simple and time-effective methods for leveraging accessible educational materials (AEM) to engage all information consumers.
