About this learning opportunity

There are many challenges students with learning differences or differing abilities face when accessing content via Remote Learning. Whether it is a struggle with reading or writing, accessing the computer, or staying engaged, it is imperative students receive their accommodations and modifications just as they would in their regular classroom setting. This is not an easy task, but Office 365 and Windows 10 have built in tools that will help students with learning differences access their education alongside their peers. This course provides an overview of all the accessibility tools available in Windows 10, Office 365, and other apps delivered virtually through Microsoft Teams.
