DRES IT Accessibility Badging Program

The Accessible Information Technology Group (AITG) is now offering online digital badging courses in the area of IT Accessibility.

AITG will be adding courses to the program throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact Christy Blew at clblew@illinois.edu.
