Online courses are becoming increasingly popular at UofSC. As we move toward offering more online courses, students with disabilities may get left behind. Online course accessibility is important as we extend our reach and course offerings to a variety of students near and far. Join this presentation to discuss 7+ tips for creating an accessible online course. After attending the presentation, you will be able to identify and utilize accessibility techniques and strategies in your online courses.

Register


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.

 

If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.

 

Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
