    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!

Learner variability is the norm, not the exception, so consideration of the ways students interact with digital materials is essential for curating and authoring inclusive OER.

    Using the syllabus as our template, we'll begin to explore how to put the components of universal design and the four core principles (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust, or POUR) into practice. Brought to you by the NSF funded ATE Central project and the National AEM Center at CAST, we'll explore how you can shape your class syllabus to provide a welcoming environment for all students, including those with disabilities. There will be time to get answers to your accessibility questions, and examples of how others in the community college sector are putting Universal Design for Learning into practice in their classrooms and labs.
