inPERSPECTIVE / FITNESS TRENDS - Fitness Trends in Rising Generations - 2 views

  •  
    Health and wellness is a priority for a majority of the younger demographics; according to Stanford Health, 53% of millennials say it's the most important part of their lives, coming in second behind family. Millennials have been coined the "wellness generation," but with gen Z surpassing them as the most populous generation at 32% of the population, there are new fitness practices that are taking over the industry to appeal to this even younger crowd. These rising fitness trends are more interactive, less time-consuming and have eco-friendly options.

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses - Disability Resource Center - 10 views

  •  
    Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. Designing a course with principles of universal design in mind is an ongoing and creative process. One does not achieve the level of usability aspired to with a simple checklist, but with an open mind and a commitment to making design and inclusion a priority. There are a few elements, though, that if taken into consideration, can enhance access and usability greatly. Knowing and incorporating these elements on the front end of the design process can save hours down the line.

How do I make multimedia accessible? | AccessComputing - 9 views

  •  
    Multimedia presentations can enrich education and enhance learning for many students, but it can also pose barriers for others. Audio and video are inaccessible to people who are unable to hear, and video is inaccessible to people who are unable to see critical information that is presented visually. Other students are impacted by low bandwidth Internet connections. Multimedia players can pose barriers as well if the player controls require use of a mouse or if they are not labeled sufficiently to be usable by screen reader users.

tota11y - an accessibility visualization toolkit - 7 views

  •  
    tota11y helps visualize how your site performs with assistive technologies. Check out the announcement blog post. The process of testing for accessibility (a11y) is often tedious and confusing. In many cases, developers must have some prior accessibility knowledge in order to make sense of the results. Instead, tota11y aims to reduce this barrier of entry by helping visualize accessibility violations (and successes), while educating on best practices.

Distance Learning: How Accessible are Online Educational Tools | American Foundation fo... - 5 views

  •  
    More and more schools, colleges and universities are using online educational tools that students are required to use to obtain course syllabi, access lectures and associated material, participate in class discussions, read course material, and receive grades and feedback from instructors. These popular tools, such as Blackboard, can frequently pose significant barriers to students with vision loss because they do not work well, if at all, with computer programs commonly used by students who are blind or visually impaired to access content displayed on the computer screen. For example, screen reading software reads the contents of the screen aloud. Screen magnification software enlarges text and graphics displayed on the computer screen in a customized way.

I probably don't need to tell you that podcasting takes time and effort.

How to Run a Successful Virtual Event [+ Examples] - 4 views

  •  
    Nowadays, plenty of business is done virtually. For instance, you might begin your morning by answering emails and editing a colleague's blog post via Google Doc. Your colleague is working from home today, so you Slack him to let him know when the piece is ready. In the afternoon, you have a 1:1 via Zoom with your remote manager. Then, around 4 PM, you log into a company's webinar to learn more about Social Media Marketing in 2020. The webinar has a panel of experts, and you're able to download the recorded webinar later for future reference.
