More classes are taking advantage of Blackboard to organize class documents and activities. However, sometimes the amount of materials can be overwhelming, and also unfortunately inaccessible. In this workshop we’ll talk about basic tenets of digital accessibility and usability, and walk through tools and tricks to better organize Blackboard and make your course easier for students (and faculty!) to use.

This workshop is part of the Digital Accessibility series for GW community members seeking the tools and understanding to make their teaching, research, and communication more inclusive and accessible to all audiences. GW is committed to making all digital content, including websites, social media, documents, etc. accessible and usable for everyone. For more information on Digital Accessibility, visit

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.

In-person attendance of this workshop is open to anyone whose GWorld allows them to tap into Gelman Library. If you do not have access to Gelman, please attend online.
