Feedback from students on what makes a good Moodle page highlighted the importance of clearly labelled content. Students appreciate modules which are easy to navigate and organised so that resources were easy to find. Some tips:
Maximise your content and ensure that it is accessible to the greatest number of students. You will need to consider how you write your content and structure your documents to ensure that the content is accessible.
While you continue to improve the accessibility of your content, you can provide a brief statement highlighting your good practices and let students know what content is not accessible, what is being done about it and who to ask for support/alternative formats. This could be included at the top of your module or in the module handbook. Use Ally to identify any accessibility issues you wish to include.
