Session Description

In this session we’ll investigate the common accessibility issues and needs in an asynchronous Canvas LMS course. Two tools – Canvas’s built-in accessibility checker and Ally – are compared to show which issues are detected and how to use these tools to improve the accessibility of your course’s content and files.
