Activity: Find an Accessible Video
In this activity, you will use information provided in this course, particularly Lesson 4, to find an accessible video related to your discipline. The video should contain all the necessary elements of accessibility. The video should be appropriate for the educational environment you work in. For example, teaching faculty may want to find content videos, while instructional designers may want to find tutorial videos about using course-related technology. If you have trouble finding a completely accessible video, reflect on the accessibility elements that are missing.
