Do you know the difference between Section 508 and WCAG? When is accessibility in eLearning a legal requirement and when is it just the right thing to do? Monique will answer these questions and more as she leads a presentation and discussion on the topics of accessibility standards in eLearning, and considerations for audio and text, along with some basics about color and contrast, navigation, and timing. Come join the discussion about why accessible design benefits everyone, not just the people who need it most.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to: 

  • Know the difference between Section 508 and WCAG accessibility requirements.  
  • Understand the accessibility standards in eLearning: audio, text, color, contrast, navigation, and timing.
  • Discuss the benefits of successful accessible design for all learners.

Monique has designed and developed training on the topics of data analysis and visualization, new employee orientation, technical trades training, and supervisor training. 

She is currently leading two projects: one to design a yearlong spaced and blended continuous training program for operations supervisors, and another to build training for design and engineering supervisors to improve supervisor-employee interactions. In addition to a master’s degree in English, Monique has also earned a certificate in instructional design.
