Going Beyond Standard 8: Linking WCAG 2.1 with Accessibility and Usability Standard of the QM Rubric


In our presentation, we discuss our institution's accessibility best practices and how we aligned them with the Standard 8 of the QM Rubric. In our gap analysis, we found out that, even though Standard 8 does an excellent job to start the course accessibility process, full course accessibility status takes understanding WCAG 2.1 guidelines and their correlation to Standard 8 of the QM Rubric.

We guide the participants through decoding the mystery of accessibility and how to meet federal accessibility requirements while exceeding QM Standard 8. The participants leave with practical examples of how to apply Standard 8 while adhering to WCAG 2.1 guidelines fully.
