Creating Accessible Mathematic Courses in Moodle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2012 Athabasca University converted a first year calculus course from a print-based (PDF documents generated from LaTeX) to an online format (MathML) in the process configuring the content so that it was accessible to people with disabilities. The process of creating this content was informed by a set of accessibility guidelines developed in-house and based on the W3C’s WCAG guidelines and the POUR set of principles. This talk will outline the accessibility guidelines, discuss how they were applied in this project and detail the process involved in converting an inaccessible format into accessible online content.
