Digital Accessibility Badging Program
The Digital Accessibility Foundations course is the prerequisite for this course and the Digital Accessibility Badging Program. This program contains self-paced online workshops focusing on how to create digital content (slide presentations, websites, PDFs, etc.) in an accessible way. You may choose to take as many workshops as you like.
In each workshop, you will learn specific skills and apply them to your everyday work. Successful completion of each course will help you earn a badge for the topic of that course.
