This was a presentation made at the SIMIODE EXPO 2021 - see program.
Abstract: This session will focus on a walk-through of accessibility criteria, definitions, tips and practices, included in ISKME’s new framework and guide, Accessibility of STEM OER Guidebook, that are specifically related to STEM, and supporting authors and curators of open STEM content. The guidebook offers an extension of the P.O.U.R. framework (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust), called P.O.U.R. + STEM. The session will demonstrate how STEM open educational resources (OER) may be evaluated using the guidebook, and tools for remediating accessibility challenges that are identified through the evaluation process.
