    Does your educational institution narrowly address accessibility as a compliance issue? Learn how to face it by implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in your initial framework. In this webinar, hosted by Verbit and featuring the AEM Center's Cynthia Curry, participants will learn how to take accessibility further by implementing UDL, a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all learners. The webinar will provide insight on where to begin on your UDL journey, and will explore the impact of incorporating UDL and AI tools in your educational framework. This is a free webinar hosted by Verbit as part of their The Accessible Classroom Redefined series.

    MathML being written on a blackboard.

    2:00PM – 3:00PM ET on Tuesday, January 22, 2019

    MathML is a markup language used to display equations and other mathematical expressions on the web and in other formats such as ePub and NIMAS. MathML is important for accessibility because it allows equations to be stored as structured text rather than images. Unlike images, structured text can be enlarged with good resolution for low-vision users who need magnification. Blind learners can use screen readers that support MathML to navigate and review the parts of mathematical expressions in the correct order, which is important for understanding complex mathematical expressions. But writing MathML code is not for the faint of heart! In this webinar, we’ll show you some ways you can write and use MathML code with little to no coding. We will then also demonstrate a number of other math accessibility tools from Texthelp, Desmos, the DIAGRAM Center and more!
