eLearning accessibility programme for Articulate 360 key features

Training approach

Despite the fact that inclusive design in web development has been a key requirement for many years, it is still an emerging field in the L&D industry. Our eLearning accessibility programme offers a unique opportunity for learning developers to enhance their skills and improve their employability. The programme is designed to give everyone the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills so that they can confidently apply accessibility principles throughout their learning content. It is underpinned by a focus on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards and other best practice recommendations which are most relevant to learning practitioners and have the most significant impact on improving the learner experience.

Authoring tools

Our programme for Articulate 360 is delivered with a focus on both Storyline and Rise. This allows delegates a good understanding of how accessibility can be practically applied using two contrasting approaches to content development and also how principles are easily transferrable to other tools. The training demonstrates examples and some common accessibility pitfalls for each tool. Delegates are referred to existing Articulate step by step instructions for in depth and up to date guidance on specific tool functionality. Previous experience using the tools is therefore not a requirement, neither is access to the tools during the training.

Programme delivery

The programme is delivered via the Zoom platform. As experienced online trainers, we know how difficult it can be to process and retain information which is delivered remotely. As a result we run the programme over two 3.5 hour sessions. Our sessions are engaging and interactive with plenty of opportunity for Q&A and additional support. We also schedule a 10-minute break in each session.

Programme benefits

  • Pre-session learning activities, designed to engage and stimulate delegates on the topic of accessibility for learning experiences before training begins.
  • Best practice accessibility for online delivery.
  • Training delivery by Susi Miller.
  • Technical support from producer throughout training sessions.
  • Comprehensive delegate support notes, with links to full A360 instructions and useful references.

Organisational eLearning accessibility programme

For any organisation that aspires to provide high quality, accessible learning experiences, eLaHub’s eLearning accessibility programme offers a uniquely targeted and time-efficient solution. The benefit of our organisational programme is that it can be delivered to accommodate the specific needs of our clients and it allows a more targeted focus on organisational processes and concerns.

We most frequently deliver the programme with a focus on Articulate 360 authoring tools but can also create bespoke content for a range of other tools.

A key feature of the programme is an emphasis on how accessibility can enhance the learning experience, rather than being a constraint which limits creativity and design possibilities.

Our organisational programme can be delivered as a stand alone course or supported with further training, auditing and remediation and targeted consultancy services.

Really excellent accessibility training! It was engaging, interesting and relevant. We really appreciated the perspective of a fellow designer/developer which made it super practical. These sessions will now allow us to lay the foundations for company-wide and systematic action in this area.
