Creating Accessible OER

screenshot of creating accessible OER SCORM showing 5 tips, resources, and note

Today’s blog post is a bit of a two-fer.  First, I wanted to try out / show / share a new tool I’ve been trying out:  iSpring Page.  As you can see from the embedded SCORM package below, I’m currently playing with the trial version.  Second, I wanted to share with you some #edtips about a specific (and important) #edtech topic:  accessibility (especially digital accessibility) and OER (Open Educational Resources).  Please enjoy!

Just in case the embed code does not work well on your device, here is the link to the Creating Accessible OER iSpring presentation directly, the shortened URL (if you’d like to share it) is: https://bit.ly/37TsPeb.

As always, I'd love to hear from you.  Especially, I would love to hear if you have any additional digital accessibility tips for OER to incude, if you have any personal experiences with iSpring that you’d like to share, or if you have other comments about this blog post!

UPDATE:

I’ve recently discovered, quite ironically considering the topic of my above SCORM module, that iSpring does not meet accessibility requirements in that it does not allow for alt text to be added for images.  As a result, I’m exploring alternative applications for content creation.  iSpring informs me that they are working on adding this functionality and I can only hope they do so, and quickly, since the app itself is quite good and easy to use.
