Assessing Impact and Engagement of Digital Learning – Monday, August 5th
Debby Lewis and Danae Wolfe
Evaluating impact is a priority of Extension programs. Assessing the impact of digital content and online learning opportunities is no less important than assessing the impact of traditional face-to-face programs, but it does require a bit more planning and preparation. Evaluation should be fully integrated into the development and design of online learning opportunities. This webinar will offer participants helpful information on incorporating evaluation into formal online learning through online courses and webinars and informal online learning through social media, videos, and e-newsletters.

As a public institution, The Ohio State University and OSU Extension have a responsibility to create and disseminate content that is accessible to all audiences. Creating accessible contents means reducing barriers to content consumption and comprehension. Examples include ensuring that screen readers can easily read written text aloud, assigning alternate text to graphics so they may be appropriately described, and including captions with video content. This webinar will cover the basics of creating accessible digital content and cover OSU’s legal obligations in offering content that is accessible to all audiences.
