Joe Gorup at Chicago e-Learning Showcase
Chicago, IL - Tuesday, July 13, 2010
Joe Gorup, CEO CourseAvenue, LLC has been invited to speak about accessibility in e-Learning at the third annual Chicago e-Learning & Technology Showcase, August 11, 2010. Gorup's presentation, "e-Learning under ADA and Section 508: Making e-Learning Accessible and Useable by All" will be featured in the Development/Authoring Tools track. The session will address the technological demands of ADA Section 508 on e-Learning course development; show the difference between technical compliance and usability; provide strategies to avoid the expense, errors, and maintenance issues of multiple course versions; and use real world examples to illustrate these points.
Attendees will leave with budget saving tips to avoid expensive development mistakes, a road map for faster course development, and a list of proven methods for efficient creation of courses that are also Section 508 compliant and actually usable by everyone.
