I would like to say that this information is very detailed and is very accessible for usage. The presenter was very detailed and went the extra mile to cover all aspects of access learning.

Technical Remarks:

I definitely learned alot and this information could be used by the less technical savy person with ease. Being that I am not that polished in technical devices and programs I found this information very helpful and I could definitely use it in the classroom.

This is a great resource with very specific hands-on activities for creating accessible content. I will be using these modules in my online learning development course.

Accessibility is always a key concern for those offering online courses. This takes it head-on! All the resources used provide very clear guidelines. More than this the organization of the materials is quite user friendly. I completed a Master's degree several years ago in online course design and delivery. This would have been a very useful resource in that program---and this Web resource speaks to the areas of most concern, for instructors, and is current in its approach.

Technical Remarks:

I found everything easy to navigate and accessible!

As a faculty member teaching online and hybrid courses, I always worry about accessibility. Here is a very clear, direct manner to consider making all materials accessible. Very informative!

As an instructional consultant and instructor, this module is exactly what I've been looking for regarding accessibility and hands on activities regarding the creation and/or editing of multimedia files. What a great resource!!!
