This is a concurrent session.


In this presentation, see faculty using the Canvas accessibility checker, Grackle (free tool for Google files), Adobe Acrobat DC, and Ally, to create original accessible files and to identify and fix accessibility issues in older resources in a Canvas course. Get some tips about how to use each of these tools efficiently to maximize faculty time and student accessibility.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1) Utilize tools to create accessible content in Canvas and for attached resources 
2) Utilize tools to remediate inaccessible content in Canvas and attached resources


Registration information can be found on the session page: Quick Fixes Using Tools to Create Accessible Content. All sessions will be recorded.
