Accessibility Skills: Accessible Design Concepts

Accessibility Badge: Design ConceptsDescription

This badge is awarded to participants who have successfully completed the micro-course Accessible Design Concepts module. This micro-course is a prerequisite for the Accessibility Skills courses. This course addresses how certain formatting decisions impact accessibility. The lessons are program agnostic and focus more on why certain formatting tools support accessibility and less about how to use them (the how-to lessons are covered in the Skills courses).

The micro-course takes approximately 3 hours to complete.


To earn the badge the participant needs to receive an 80% or higher on a quiz that covers the core concepts.

The quiz requires participants to demonstrate the following:

  • Identify the core principles that support accessible content creation.
  • Identify the purpose of page structure, alt text, descriptive hyperlinks in supporting accessibility.
  • Evaluate appropriate alt text for images.
  • Differentiate design decisions that support and hinder access.
