DSD: Creating accessible social media content
Course Description:

Creating social media content that is accessible takes little effort and ensures that what you post and create will be engaging and easy to consume for all.

In this session we will build a checklist from planning to publishing that covers: image creation, writing in plain English, checking colour contrast, emoji use, writing alternative text, and how to adapt to inaccessible platforms.

Whether you're in need of a refresher or a complete novice, this session will give you the tools to create accessible social media content across all the platforms you use.
