What we do

Are you an L&D professional who wants to design training to meet a wider range of accessibility needs? Or perhaps you want practical tips to apply accessibility guidelines?

Or are you an aspiring Instructional Designer who just wants to get started with the basics of accessibility in learning content design?

Learning Content Accessibility (or LCA for short) Spotlight was created to help you get started with accessibility.

What is the LCA Spotlight?

The Learning Content Accessibility Spotlight is a non-profit, voluntary initiative with a mission to make accessibility more accessible for new or experienced learning content designers. 

Our aim is to bring an accessibility standard, topic, question, or even actual project to the spotlight for 2 weeks so that we can all learn from each other and raise awareness about accessibility in learning design.

So what do we do?

Community

We run a LinkedIn group (called Learning Content Accessibility Spotlight) where you can ask questions, join a conversation, and pick up tips about accessibility.

Resources

We curate a list of accessibility resources specifically for learning content creators so you can find (and submit) the most relevant resources for your eLearning in one place. 

WCAG Summaries

We have summarised and translated just about 70% of the WCAG guidelines to apply to learning content. We also created spotlights for other relevant topics.

Newsletter

We post a new spotlight twice a month (on the first and third Tuesday of each month). You can access them via the LinkedIn newsletter or here. 

Sign up for our newsletter (or follow this link for a more accessible subscription form).

If you would like to get involved, we welcome you to submit projects you need help with to be one of the spotlights or suggest topic ideas. Or you can get involved supporting the community.
