ITS Digital Accessibility Team launches content editor training

February 7, 2018

The Web Accessibility Policy, announced on January 24 by Provost Ben Polak, establishes requirements for staff, faculty, and students to procure, develop, and modify University websites so that they are accessible to people with disabilities.

In support of the policy which goes into effect March 1, the ITS Digital Accessibility team will offer training for those who manage website content.  The half-day workshop aims to:

  • Explain the roles and responsibilities for content editors in improving the accessibility of Yale’s digital campus
  • Teach best practice for creating and editing content to be accessible
  • Share resources available to assist content editors in maintaining accessible content

Note: This workshop is primarily for people who create content through tools such as Wordpress or YaleSites Drupal.

Register for an upcoming training session to learn more.

To gain a broad understanding of the new policy and how it may impact your school, unit or department, you are encouraged to register for an upcoming web accessibility policy information session.
