Digital Content Accessibility Training

I encourage all UO employees who create digital materials to take one or both of these trainings.
UO President Karl Scholz (Around the O)

The University of Oregon's Digital Accessibility Training was created by UO faculty and staff in the Instructional and Administrative Content Accessibility Advisory Collaborative (IACA2C), integrating new materials and updates to existing Creative Commons modules.

Intended Audience

This training is for anyone who creates or edits digital content. "Digital content" includes Word documents, PDFs, videos, flyers, emails, electronic textbooks, PowerPoint presentations, spreadsheets, charts, Canvas courses, and most other types of documents and media accessed via computers or mobile devices. The training will help you understand how people with disabilities are impacted by digital accessibility and will explain the basics of what you need to make your digital content accessible to people with disabilities.

Target groups:

  • Faculty and instructors
  • Administrative staff

If you are looking for training on making websites accessible, check out the Web Accessibility Training.


This training includes two core modules, and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete:

  1. Understanding Accessibility
  2. Accessible Design Concepts

There are also several supplementary modules with details on making the following types of content accessible, including:

  • Word
  • PowerPoint
  • PDF
  • Email
  • Canvas
  • Miscellaneous (videos/captioning, meetings, webinars, math/STEM)

Take the Training

The UO Digital Content Accessibility Training is on MyTrack.

If you are not a UO employee and do not have access to MyTrack, you can find a public copy of the training content in the Canvas Community supplemental materials. UO employees will not receive credit for taking the Canvas Community version of the training.

After Completion

Once you complete this training, you can:

  • Check out the supplemental materials on Canvas Community.
  • Get quick tips for making materials accessible in the Guidelines section of this site.
  • Use the Digital Content Accessibility Training badge in your professional profile. You'll receive the badge at the completion of the MyTrack training.
