Tuesday, July 30 - Accessibility Workshop

Meeting Accessibility Standards and Benchmarking Progress
This session will review the recently published matrix for meeting institutional accessibility obligations.

Intended to help colleges with implementing the Information and Communication Technology and Instructional Material Accessibility Standard established by the CCC Chancellor's Office, the Institutional Accessibility matrix outlines four major goals and levels of "accessibility maturity" for institutions. As effective implementation of the standard is a continuous process, these goals are designed to help focus the campus on the appropriate questions and conversations relevant to current solutions and to benchmark progress. Come participate in the IT Accessibility Workshop to learn about this new Institutional Accessibility matrix.

Integrating Accessibility into the Procurement Process
One method to improve campus technology accessibility is to review IT products before purchasing. This session will review different strategies for integrating accessibility reviews into purchasing practices.

Colleges often struggle with determining if web and IT products meet accessibility standards and what steps to take to include accessibility as part of procurement processes. There are four general practices that campuses can implement, including the documentation of functional business requirements, reviewing vendor accessibility documentation, obtaining third-party evaluations, and including accessibility language as part of any contract. Come participate in the IT Accessibility Workshop to learn about some strategies to include accessibility into procurement procedures.

Funded under the Shared Infrastructure Program grant by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office, the CCC Accessibility Center offers training and technical assistance on a variety of accessibility-specific topics, including web accessibility, the use of assistive computer technologies, the creation of alternate formats, and how to integrate accessibility into online instruction.
