Creating Accessible Online Courses with Storyline and Rise

Date & Time

There are a variety of eLearning course authoring platforms that can be used to help content authors quickly create online courses. Many of these platforms also claim to let you easily create courses that support the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the platforms provide tools to address fundamental accessibility issues such as accessible course controls, accessible videos as well as basic keyboard support, and the option to incorporate accessible quizzes within a course module. However, authors must properly implement the accessibility features as well as be aware of the fundamental accessibility limitations in each platform that need to be resolved in order to meet accessibility requirements.

Storyline 360 and Rise 360, both produced by Articulate Global LLC, have traditionally been two of the easiest tools to use for content creators but have had significant accessibility issues. Articulate continues to make significant progress towards making the Storyline 360 and Rise 360 platforms more accessible, but additional work still needs to be done. This presentation will delve into some of the key accessibility features and limitations in both platforms as well as review strategies to address these barriers.

A series of sample courses will be reviewed and a summary of the major accessibility testing steps needed for each platform will also be presented along with tips to avoid known accessibility pitfalls.
