Monday Morning Mentors
Here’s how it works. Each Monday morning you get on-demand access to a new online “mini-seminar” that you can watch anytime during the week—when and where it’s convenient for you. At just 20 minutes, it is easy to fit into any schedule.
Each session includes a video presentation by our most popular presenters, plus supplemental materials, PowerPoint slides, and the complete transcript.
Please visit the supplemental materials, there is a certificate you can print off after watching the video and some great handouts you will want to print for future use.
Here is the upcoming schedule.
Creating Accessible PowerPoint Presentations – During this presentation, you will learn key concepts for making your PowerPoint Presentations accessible. We will provide an overview of what makes presentations ADA compliant and show you some tools that are available to ensure that your course content is ADA compliant.
