In this excerpt from the inaugural DigitalChalk Synapse User Conference, Mike Mote from the Industries for the Blind (IFB) discusses how he and his team use the suite of accessibility features available in the DigitalChalk corporate LMS.
Two things that make DigitalChalk LMS standout for IFB are:
1. Simplicity — The user experience doesn’t need to be hard. DigitalChalk is simple and straightforward. Anyone can sit down, get to the courses and material and do what they need to do in a short amount of time. It doesn’t take a few weeks to train. It actually only takes 30-45 minutes.
2. Easy administration on the backend — A tremendous advantage is that administratively, DigitalChalk is accessible. As Mike said, “I don’t ask for sighted assistance. I can do what I need to do because it’s easy. It’s a huge problem solver for me because I can take on more responsibility that would normally be given to a sighted person. I can do it, manage it, and the users can have a good experience.”
Provide online training that is accessible to all employees, both blind and sighted.
