The goal of this session is to explain the fundamentals of web accessibility. This session will explain the concepts around web accessibility, 508 compliance, and WCAG compliance. Participants will be armed with a list of resources for testing and improving their sites. This session will share easy changes that content editors can make today to improve a site's level of accessibility, as well as review simple requests you can make from your developers to improve compliance. The primary audience for this session includes content editors, designers, developers, marketers, teachers, faculty, and anyone who has influence over a website. Learn IT @ Lunch is designed to be an opportunity to learn about technology in a relaxed lunch environment. Each session includes a presentation followed by Q & A. No pre-registration is required.
