Conversely I hope we have all participated in a course where we got to know our instructor, see them smile and describe their teaching style and expectations in their own words. How can we accomplish this in our UAA courses? In this EduTip we will take a look at three media tools that both instructors and students may use to create a sense of presence in online course, connect with their peers and build their community.

Voicethread Resources. About - Features. Accessibility At VoiceThread, we believe universal accessibility means more than just saying we meet a few guidelines in Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act. We do want to make our software usable by all people, and Section 508 does a good job of encouraging that, but we want to go one step further and make it straightforward and pleasant for everyone to use, as well. We want to serve the needs of a person with dyslexia or ADHD, an outdoor classroom with mobile devices, a user in the developing world without high-speed internet, a kindergartner, or an elderly lifelong learner.

In our experience, the only way to do this is by thoughtful and sensitive design, with lots of input from our differently-abled users, and that's something that can't be contained in any number of checkboxes. Input from users is especially important because often accessibility features aren't what we expected. Accessibility | VoiceThread Support. VoiceThread-Accessibility-Whitepaper.
