How do we make digital learning accessible?

As online learning designers we’re often tempted to experiment with new functionality, but sometimes our enthusiasm for innovative approaches can create a barrier for users.

On this week’s episode of the GoodPractice Podcast, eLearning Developer Michael Osborne and Learning and Development Advisor Mike Shaw join Ross Garner and Gemma Towersey to discuss their tips for creating accessible learning.
