Classes & Workshops

Digital accessibility training is a great way to improve the accessibility of MSU content, understand why accessibility is important, and to get a better understanding of MSU's Web Accessibility Policy. MSU Information Technology (IT) offers a few options for accessibility training to colleges and departments.

Deque University Training

Deque University offers online, self-paced, just-in-time accessibility training. Deque's comprehensive web accessibility curriculum covers the full range of topics, with classes designed for Faculty, web developers, QA testers, project/program administrators, and other content creators.

Cost

As a part of its renewed commitment to digital access and inclusion, MSU IT is underwriting the cost of Deque University training, which is now available at no-cost.

MSU faculty, staff, and graduate teaching assistants can sign up for one course at a time, and courses must be completed before becoming eligible to sign-up for an additional course.

Courses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be limited to 100 signups per year.

Cancellation Policy

Since these courses are offered asynchronously online, cancellations are not available.

Once you register for a course you will have until the end of our contract complete the training.
