Accessibility Skills: Canvas

Accessibility Badge: CanvasDescription

This badge is awarded to participants who have successfully completed the Accessibility Skills micro-course. This course addresses tools that support Universal Design for Learning, as well as accessibility tools in Instructure Canvas that support accessible page design. As a beginner-level course, the following topics are addressed: headings, alt text, formatting (lists, descriptive hyperlinks), and tables. The course also provides a basic introduction on how to use Blackboard Ally, an accessibility checker available at most, if not all, community colleges in Washington State. This micro-course takes approximately 3 hours to complete.


Successful completion of this micro-course requires earning 80% or higher on a quiz that covers the core concepts. The quiz requires participants to demonstrate the following:

Identify the appropriate use and application of headings.
Determine if alt text is included for an image, if it is appropriate, and add it if it is needed.
Improve accessibility by ensuring text is formatted properly (lists, hyperlinks, color contrast, etc.).
Determine if a table is used appropriately.
Format a table for accessibility.
