creating accessible e-learning masterclass
Creating accessible e-learning masterclass [Code: 2DCAEMC]
Who is the course suitable for?
Primary teachers (ages 7-11) and secondary teachers (and teaching assistants), NQTs, and those with responsibility for special educational needs (SEN) or those with an interest in moving into SEN.
About the course:
This course builds on the course 'Creating accessible resources boot camp' (code: 1DCARBC) but can be taken as a stand-alone course.
This course demonstrates how a teacher can create more accessible e-learning which can be used with a diverse range of mobile technologies (tablets and smartphones: iOS, Android and Windows), laptops and desktops. The accessible e-learning produced can also be used in virtual learning environments (SCORM compliant).
The course is very much hands-on and as the training progresses the delegates will be given frequent opportunities to create best practice accessible e-learning materials.
What the attendee will be able to do at the end of the course:
Recall common accessibility issues encountered by pupils when accessing e-learning content
Design and create e-learning (compatible with mobile technologies and virtual learning environments, such as Moodle) to overcome accessibility issues commonly encountered by pupils leading to greater equity of access
How the course benefits an attendee's school:
The course supports teacher skillset development to design and create accessible e-learning, which will help ensure pupils with SEN are given access to the curriculum and are motivated and challenged to the same degree as their peers. Attendees on their return can share the knowledge and skills gained with the wider school community to aid leading to greater equity of access. It will provide a school with practical support in helping meet its responsibility in providing appropriate special education needs provision as required on a pupil-by-pupil basis
Post course support:
Yes, if you want to phone or email a question to the trainer; or send through a resource you’ve created for your trainer’s feedback; this is actively encouraged
JSH's +1 offer: At the end of all each day the trainer will stay behind for an additional hour for any questions you may have or to provide additional support. However, we know at the end of a training event a delegate is often tired, or needs to get home or perhaps return to school. So for all JSH Learning courses, once you have attended a course, the next time that same course is in your area, if you wish to come along at the end of the day to ask a question that arose or you did not get time to ask first time, this is actively encouraged (we just ask you drop us an email first)
