There is no doubt that ADA compliance and accessibility is the hot button issue for today’s college and university websites. Compelled by section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, federal agencies and institutions that receive federal funding must make their websites accessible to all users. Questions remain. For example, what does web accessibility look like? And how do we get there?

At this year’s OmniUpdate User Training Conference, Keana Lynch, Beacon’s Director of UX Design & Development will draw on a wealth of experience with accessibility issues, offering valuable advice on recognizing issues and developing strategies to reach and maintain accessibility goals.  From site evaluation to action plan, get the perspective and tools you need to get ahead of any future user issues or litigation.

OUTC18 will take place from March 25 – 29 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Anaheim, CA. The OmniUpdate User Training Conference brings together higher ed content managers from all over the country to discuss the latest news, strategies and best practices for college and university websites. Broaden your knowledge base with workshops and training sessions and network with like-minded professionals from all across the higher ed space. Registration closes Friday, March 16. Register HERE.
