Online Learning During a Pandemic

 – By

As schools and businesses move to an online training and learning model to keep everyone learning during COVID-19, having the correct training is essential. Ensure people with disabilities can use a training or learning module in a way that is effective. This is an even more essential step. As an instructional designer we are always looking for tools and techniques that add value for a learner. In this role it is important to acknowledge how different people learn and adapt your training to be accessible to everyone. Our main goal here is to ensure that learning is for everyone. For every eLearning course developed there are a series of unique training requirements and certain expectations. Provisions within the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) often state that good access is good business. Making it easier for users to perceive, understand, navigate, interact, and contribute to the information presented in an online course can benefit everyone.
