Instructional materials are increasingly created and made available within an online space. Engaging materials utilize various types of images to break up walls of text and enhance learning. Describing these images with effective alternative text (alt-text) is subjective and contextually-based, requiring a treatment and knowledge beyond a simple checklist. This lesson is aimed to support educators in becoming more accessibility-literate, and to build in robust alt-text at the moment of creation.
This lesson presents five different types of images. Each image type serves a distinct purpose within the context of online instructional materials. During the lesson, learners will work through each image type, with opportunities to practice examining HTML alternative tags and writing appropriate alt-text for each type of image.
