    I really liked the information and the way it was presented in the linked resource, but I am curious if I can link to the training video "7 Course Design Wins and Other Cool Learning Strategies" and re-purpose the video using screenshots to note common accessibility mistakes when working with videos without upsetting anyone.  I understand if you would rather me not, but I was just trying to come up with ideas for illustrating common issues without seeming too preachy and was hoping I could reference this.  Please let me know if I can use it and if there is a permanent copy of this training's current state unless it is not expected to change at all.

    After viewing the actual webinar, I am very happy with the mentioning of alt text which needs to provide the equivalent information as a sighted individual would be able to see.  I would caution everyone on the use of H1's & H2's purely for aesthetics.  I like to think of an outline when looking at H1-H5 usage where H1 is the outermost and higher numbers should be contained within the lower number as if it were a point inside of a larger section.  Also I noticed the usage of "click here".  This should be avoided as in navigating webpages with a screen reader you can navigate by links or buttons without reading the rest of the content.  This means that a screen reader may read out "click here" without any context as to what the link is for.

    Hi Adam Arthur

    Thank you for your feedback on accessibility in this training! The "7 Course Design Wins" course can be found in the Bridge Learn Training Courses download here and you can edit it in Bridge as needed. If you use it as an example for how to improve accessibility in e-learning, I would very much like to see it so that we may consider how to improve our content. My email is lkarp@instructure.com.  

    I really appreciate your note about using the "click here" language for linked items and how screen readers respond to that. I'll be sure to share that insight in future trainings!

    All the best,

    Lyndsey Karp
