    • Wave Toolbar

    • UWCO/D2L Accessibility Standards Cross-reference Table

    • Course Testing Instructions & Reference Guide

    • Course Testing Worksheet

      Step 4: Develop Testing Process

  • ADD TEXT HERE

    Step 5: Determine Staffing

  • Project Manager – special assignment

  • Course Tester 1 Person without a disability (limited term employee)

  • Course Tester 2Person with Visual Impairment using assistive technology (Student worker)

    Step 6: Test Courses

  • 9 Month process

  • All failed (to varying degrees)

  • YIKES! Now what?

  • Step 7: Create Long Term Plan

    • Fix the current courses (worst to least worst)
