Web 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)

People with disabilities have the right to full participation in all aspects of the University of Oregon. If we are choosing to not make our web content accessible, we are choosing to discriminate against people with disabilities.

The University of Oregon prioritizes diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. It is crucial that we take the necessary steps to make our content accessible. This training will educate web users about the importance of web accessibility from an ethical and legal standpoint, as well as provide detailed instruction to make websites accessible. They will also find recommended tools and support services.

This training is for anyone who creates or edits websites or web content (not including those who only create content for Canvas). If you are looking for training on making documents, media, and Canvas materials accessible, check out the Digital Content Accessibility Training.


This training includes three modules:

  1. Introduction to Web Accessibility (~20 minutes)
  2. Technical Details and Rules (~2 hours)
  3. Platform-specific trainings
    1. Drupal (~35 minutes)
    2. WordPress (5-10 minutes)
