Abstract: An increase in population of students with disabilities and popular uses of online, instructional materials increased the number of issues related to inaccessible, Web content. Part of the role of disability services is to inform the teaching faculty about their legal responsibilities to provide accessible course materials for students with disabilities. Current training methods conflicted with working and training schedules, and instructors’ time for disability training is limited. Furthermore, a system for tracking who received training is nonexistent. The circumstances prompted a need for an efficient and effective method for disability training. With a focus on online accessibility, the purpose of this instructional design project was to evaluate the impact of an instructional website on creating accessible, digital content for online instructors on the Distance Committee at a federally funded, postsecondary school in Hawaii. The primary goal was for instructors to value the importance of creating accessible course materials through training; the secondary goal was to incorporate universal design. ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, Evaluate), Constructivism, Connectivism, Keller’s ARCS (Attention, Relevance, Confidence, Satisfaction), and Web 2.0 technologies were employed for designing experiential learning, community building between the teaching faculty and disability services, engagement, and for modeling accessibility. Participants eventually included other online and former online instructors, face-to-face instructors, and online, instructional designers. Findings from questionnaires, correspondence, and activities were analyzed and revealed that the instructional designed, asynchronous, online modules are a viable means of training. The findings prompted refinement on training logistics and course designs.
Description: Mission Accessible is a research study about the use of an asynchronous, online website for training on accessible, digital content for online instructors at the University of Hawaii Maui College.
