About Global Accessibility Awareness Day

The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities. A list of GAAD activities can be found on the GAAD Website GAAD activities website or the Global Accessibility Awareness Day(GAAD) website.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day at Iowa State

To celebrate this day, CELT will be offering:

Workshop: Course, Document, and Web Accessibility Checkers: Open Up the Web to All of Your Student

In this workshop, you will learn to:

  • Scan your Canvas course using UDOIT (the Universal Design Online content Inspection Tool) to make some improvements in your courses. You will find out how to configure and perform and UDOIT check, read the results from the check, and correct issues that UDOIT finds.
  • Use the Microsoft Accessibility checkers and make changes to your Word documents and PowerPoint demonstrations.
  • Discover other useful online accessibility checkers and how they can help to make your courses more accessible.

We encourage you to bring a laptop if you would like to work on the accessibility in your course; however, the laptop is not required.
