In addition to the accessibility section of the content production guide, instructions targeted at teachers are available on the Instructions for Teaching website (will be published also in English).
Moodle (moodle.helsinki.fi) and our Moodle-based MOOC environment (mooc.helsinki.fi) are teachers’ primary publishing channel for digital material. MOOC areas must always be made accessible, while closed Moodle areas need not, unless they are intended for recurring use.
The instructions for teachers in Moodle contain information on how to create, transfer or combine three types of content or services in Moodle areas:
- Content to be made accessible in Moodle (texts, links, tables, images)
- Content to be made accessible outside Moodle (e.g., self-produced documents, videos and recordings)
- Third-party content or services (e.g., documents, videos, recordings, websites or online services)
In addition to the accessibility instructions, teachers are supported by the specialists of Educational Technology Services.
The accessibility of videos continues to present challenges. In addition to the development of existing systems, the University is currently testing and piloting new tools and services with which accessibility requirements can be met even better in the future.
