Hello online learner!
My name is Blake and I am very excited to share with you a bit about myself and my goals for my online course.
I want to open a world of ways you can make online courses more accessible and more student oriented. That is why this is why I developed a FREE course, Building Accessible Online Courses, that will help online educators and students to advocate more and shape this new technology and strategy for education. I hope you will become an accessibility advocate as well.
-I have been taking online courses since 2013 on edx(dot)org as well as FutureLearn, Coursera and Udemy. I have also taken courses on TeamTreehouse for web design and coding.
-I stay up to date via online education meetups, ed-tech conferences and twitter #a11y.
-I developed Confident Dyslexic App in 2014 that speaks dyslexic empowerment phrases. It has over 5,000 Android downloads around the world.
-AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer who served as a consultant to train nonprofit tech administrators to utilize the latest cloud technology.
It is my hope that they can advocate more for themselves in this new educational medium.
Please let me know how I can improve this course. Feel free to get in touch with me on which online courses you have been interested in and have found success with.
