e-Learning 2.0 Conference: Technology Use in Teaching and Learning
This year’s e-Learning 2.0 Conference Keynote Address, “Cultivating Web Accessibility,” is an entertaining and motivating overview of web accessibility that touches on a number of e-Learning topics, including the challenges faced by students with disabilities, current trends in Accessibility law, and the difficulties that confront institutions when implementing accessibility policies. The keynote will be delivered by Jared Smith, the Associate Director of WebAIM, who has presented extensively and provided web accessibility training to thousands of developers throughout the world.
With a degree in Marketing/Business Education, a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology, and over 13 years of professional experience in the fields of web design, development, and accessibility, Jared brings to bear a wealth of knowledge and experience in order to help others create and maintain highly-accessible web content. Much of his written work, including a broad range of tutorials, articles, and other materials, is featured on the WebAIM site. Jared is active on Twitter at @jared_w_smith.
