Digital Accessibility

    EX 1111 is offered this winter:

Dig­i­tal acces­si­bil­i­ty refers to the prac­tice of build­ing dig­i­tal con­tent and appli­ca­tions that can be used by a wide range of peo­ple, includ­ing chil­dren and indi­vid­u­als who have visu­al, motor, audi­to­ry, speech, or cog­ni­tive dis­abil­i­ties. This course will teach stu­dents how to incor­po­rate acces­si­bil­i­ty into the design process. Stu­dents will explore the prin­ci­ples of uni­ver­sal design in the light of the mul­ti­me­dia acces­si­bil­i­ty to improve the expe­ri­ence of web­sites, apps and forms for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties. They will devel­op their own design guide­lines to make online con­tent more acces­si­ble. Pre­req­ui­site EXSM 3932 or EXSM 3928
