• Creating Accessible Content

    • Checklist for Blackboard WCM Content Editors

    • While creating website content it is crucial to consider accessibility. There are a few basic steps that should be followed in order to assure your content is accessible:

      • Add built-in headings to document and do not skip numbers (e.g. jumping from Heading 1 to Heading 3)

      • Use built-in list options (e.g. bullets or numbers)

      • Add alt text for all images

      • Make all links descriptive and don't use full url or "click here"

      • Define table headers and simplify tables as much as possible
