Authoring Accessible OER
The partnership between ISKME and CISL has produced some exciting new developments in the space of accessible OER.
The Accessibility Checker is just one of the features we've developed with ISKME for their Open Author OER authoring tool.
Assess the accessibility of your OER and get suggestions for quick fixes with the accessibility checker in Open Author from OER Commons.
Download OER as EPUB
New to OER Commons, the EPUB3 format allows users to export resources created with Open Author to use in their favorite e-reader application, including Clusive. This format is also compatible with offline use, screen readers, and Braille displays.
The Future of Accessible OER
As part of the ISKME/CISL collaboration, we're working on two exciting new initiatives:
- OER resource templates to support accessibility practices
- An OER Commons Hub that brings together UDL-related instructional materials
Together these features will support building accessible and open educational resources for all.
