This session will go over easy tips that educators can use in designing accessible instructional content. These tips will focus on design lessons learned while building accessible courses using BLEND. This is designed to be a basic primer on simple ways to ensure your content will work with TTS extensions and other design features that will meet the needs of students with disabilities who may require accommodations. Participants will be provided with an easy guide of tips that they can use during course creation, and they are welcome to bring their own devices to access and practice using BLEND. This session is intended for any teacher who wants to use BLEND during the upcoming school year.
