Barrier-Free Design

One of the most important questions instructional designers need to answer when developing online courses is: Do we design barriers that create disabilities?

As we design our online courses we take care not to create barriers to learning. What if I want to review an online course while I’m on a WIFI-enabled plane but forgot my headphones? Shouldn’t I be able to disable the sound and still access and learn all the material? What if I have limited vision and have a difficult time reading that script text that you thought made the otherwise boring list look more engaging? Do these thoughtless designs create barriers for learners?

Dynamic Works is looking at their course designs with an eye toward usability for all. We are ensuring users can navigate through lessons without a mouse. Audio narration can be turned off or on, and closed captioning or text of the narrated lessons is always available. Alternate text labels describe images and graphs for screen readers and we can provide accessible PDF documents of course scripts if needed.

Along with our goal to avoid barriers, we want our courses to be easy to navigate and understand. Buttons and hyperlinks should be easy to spot and just as easy to use. We make sure to define terms and acronyms and use headings and titles for our onscreen text. When appropriate, we combine shapes with color to distinguish differences, such as a green checkmark or a red X.

Do you, or your users, have a special need? Contact Dynamic Works Institute to discuss how we can remove barriers to your learning!
