THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND Accessibility can add up to 40% more time to eLearning development. Learning Modules should be 5 to 7 minutes long. When using complex images such a charts or graphs, a long description is needed in addition to a short alt text. ALSO KEEP IN MIND

Test questions must be found in all mediums used in the course: audio, video, text version. Watch for acronyms, abbreviations, and shortened words. Be mindful of how people may comprehend similes, metaphors, slang or jargon, and idioms. RESOURCES Colour Contrast Analyser
