DRES IT Accessibility Badging Program

The Accessible Information Technology Group (AITG) is now offering online digital badging courses in the area of IT Accessibility. Participants who attend and complete badging requirements will be awarded digital badges which can be displayed on sites such as LinkedIn or Twitter, or placed in a badge/e-portfolio platform. AITG will be adding courses to the program throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact Christy Blew at clblew@illinois.edu.

Courses are delivered using Blackboard and Blackboard Collaborate.
