Accessible social media – creating content that reach everyone
What can you do to publish accessibly on social media? In this course you will learn more about how to create posts and other content that reaches more users and also meets legal requirements. You can start immediately with the recorded part of the course. If you want to reinforce your knowledge further, sign up for a teacher-led course day.
The course is aimed at those who publish content on channels such as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
To get the most out of the course, you should have basic knowledge of accessibility, either through our Introduction to Accessibility course, or acquired in another way, for example through practical work.
