Innovators In Online Learning Webinar—Inclusive Design For Education: All In

An item from SoftChalk.


Join us for our upcoming Innovators in Online Learning Webinar:

Inclusive Design for Education: ALL IN

Inclusive design for education is no longer the future it is the present. With accessibility at the forefront of lesson design, many instructors are realizing that accessibility not only helps the students that require the accommodation, but also helps ALL students.

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) includes accessibility but goes farther to help ALL students. One part of the Universal Design for Learning is presenting materials in various formats, such as audio format, so that students can select the format that is best for their learning methodology.

This webinar will talk about how SoftChalk allows instructors ways to embed videos, images, change up the format, etc. and how ReadSpeaker adds the voice and reading accessibility features to SoftChalk.

Come see how these two easy to use products can help you move your lessons toward UDL which is an inclusive design for learners.

Now Available: Improved Navigation For SoftChalk Cloud LTI ScoreCenter

An item from SoftChalk that may be of interest.


We are excited to share that SoftChalk has released new and improved navigation for SoftChalk’s LTI ScoreCenter. The functionality of the SoftChalk Cloud LTI ScoreCenter will not change. We’ve simply updated the design of the interface to make it easier to navigate, and to make the interface more device responsive (so it looks great on mobile and tablet interfaces as well as desktop monitors).


Here’s a quick video tour of the new LTI ScoreCenter navigation.
