Dear Colleagues:



I'll be teaching this online class in the fall. Please pass this along to
anyone who you think might be interested. It will also be available as a
non-credit course although that option has not been posted yet.




*Universal Design for Digital Media: Where Usability & Accessibility Meet*

(listed as SPECIAL TOPICS IN TECHNOLOGY, ARTS, AND MEDIA: UNIVERSAL DESIGN
FOR DIGITAL MEDIA, ATLS 3519-581)
Register at:

CU Continuing Education <http://conted.colorado.edu/courses/>; (under ATLAS
program)

*Fall 2012 Schedule:* Sept. 4 – Dec. 14, 2012



*Course Description*



Many web and media designers believe that the design process begins and
ends with information architecture and visual design. Although these
elements are important, other factors are equally if not more crucial for
the design of successful web sites and other digital media. This course
will examine the standards and methods for designing digital material that
is not only accessible for persons with disabilities – a particularly
important requirement for the web sites of public entities – but also
effective and usable for all users and across platforms.
