The standard view of this forum does not always work well with assistive technology. We also provide a simpler view, which still contains all features. Switch to simple view.

Day 9 Activity (Choice)

Option One:

Web Accessibility Tools: Take a look at the Accessibility Assessment Tools located in the Floe: Inclusive Design Handbook around Authoring, Checking Code or Checking Colour. You can also go deeper by looking at the multitude of web accessibility tools available from the W3C.  

Next, choose one (or more) OERs and check it using some of the tools. How well did it perform accessibility-wise? Was there anything about your results that could be done to make the resource more inclusive?

Option Two:

Developing a Persona - The Inclusive Design Guide includes an activity on developing personas to help identify users of a design. Think about an OER you might want to develop and create a persona (or personas) for it, using the steps outlined in the guide. Then, reflect on how you would design with these personas in mind and any considerations you would include in that process. 

Option Three:

Creating an Inclusive OER

Adding an image to Flickr - If you have a Flickr account, take/share and upload a picture to your account, using an open license. Using recommendations for images from the BC Open Accessibility Toolkit articulate what the image functions and alt-text would be.

With any of the three options you can choose to share you work in the Day 9 discussion forum, in a chosen social media space (blog, tweet, Instagram), or just save it for your own reflection.
