Who is this session for?

People in the accessibility realm that are looking to provide accessibility training to content managers

Session description

Want to provide accessibility training for content managers on your campus?  On a limited budget?  We will walk through how a homegrown accessibility training was created and rolled out to over 500 content managers across the state of Tennessee and was required.  We will discover topics covered in the first year, how the content was sourced for training using mostly existing videos already available, how training was rolled out and steps taken to attain a 95% completion rate.  We will also discuss how to keep topics fresh annually.
