Full course description

The Design Studio was created to help simplify the course development and certification process. After completing the Design Studio, you will be able to:

  • Apply inclusive design principles to create accessible course content; and
  • Construct modules, lessons, activities, and assessments that apply best practices in online learning.
The University is legally obligated to provide courses that are accessible to all students. To help you meet this requirement, this Studio will guide you through the process of developing course materials that meet the federal standards set forth in Section 508 of the Workforce Rehabilitation Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) set forth by the Web Accessibility Initiative. In addition, Clemson University is committed to offering engaging, high-quality courses. Therefore, the Studio is designed to help you meet the certification standards outlined in ENCORE(S), the internal review process that we use to recognize and reward courses that model best practices in online course design.
