Accessibility Training Resources
Course launches in Fall 2023; please check back soon.
ITS Training facilitates the Drupal CMS workshops. Anyone wishing to access Drupal content must complete the Drupal workshop before granting access. The Drupal workshop is in two parts, and ITS Training also provides a Web Accessibility: Manul Check workshop.
The Center for Effective Teaching and Learning (CETL) provides invaluable accessibility workshops for faculty. Topics include the Canvas Learning Management System, the BlackBoard Ally LTI for Canvas that provides instructor feedback on the accessibility of course content, and a dedicated Instructional Materials Accessibility workshop.
ITS Accessibility utilizes PopeTech to provide enterprise-wide Accessibility automated scans. PopeTech uses the same user-friendly technology in the WebAIM WAVE single-page scanning tool, one of the most used accessibility testing engines in the world. All Drupal content editors have access to PopeTech, but we encourage any campus member interested in requesting a PopeTech account to request PopeTech access by emailing us.
Editoria11y ("editorial accessibility") is a user-friendly web accessibility tool that runs automatically in our Drupal CMS. Note that Editoria11y does not check while you are editing a campus webpage. However, when looking at a page you have content editor access to, Editoria11y will alert you to accessibility barriers and suggest items requiring manual verification.
The ICT-PAR process in ServiceNow is a required form that must be completed before acquiring IT products or services. The process includes three parallel approval processes, one of which is accessibility. A video walkthrough of the ICT-PAR process is available that explains all the fields and required inputs.
ITS Accessibility has purchased 50 seats of the highly acclaimed WebAIM Accessible Document Training. The training is self-paced and gives participants up to 60 days to complete. The training will enable you and your team to create accessible Word, PowerPoint, and PDF documents.

Each Social Media Working Group meeting includes an accessibility component.
