Digital Course Content Development Training

Digital course content development includes consideration for components including learning management systems, websites, Massive Online Open Content (MOOCs), PowerPoint presentations, graphics, images, videos, and many others.  The learner's experience benefits from a focus on making content and interfaces inclusive, accessible, and usable.

The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) at Iowa State provides guidance, support, and training for developing accessible, usable and inclusive digital content and experiences.  CELT created a dedicated page to help instructors "accessify" their courses.
