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.

 

Web Development Training

Web development takes many forms at Iowa State University.  We have a number of content management systems (Drupal, Wordpress) and coding and content development schemes. The Office of Digital Access provides consultation, support and guidance for web development and content creation units and staff to aid in their adoption of accessibility practices throughout the project lifecycle.
