Update 6/18/20: The recording of the Exploring Accessible Campus Maps Using SAS Graphics Accelerator webinar is now available!
This spring has been challenging for many O&Ms with school closures and remote instruction. How are you handling university orientation for students transitioning to college? Paths to Technology has a series of blog posts about SAS Graphics Accelerator Maps - cutting-edge technology that enables O&Ms, TVIs, Disability Support Staff and family members to quickly create fully accessible campus maps using Google Maps and SAS Graphics Accelerator.
You may be following the recent posts about Victor, the rising college freshman, as he uses a non-visual campus map during a Zoom lesson to build a mental map of campus and how he applies this mental map during his on campus O&M lesson. Intrigued?
During this webinar you will learn how students with visual impairments or blindness explore online campus maps. The webinar will explore specific scenarios that:
- Enable high school students with visual impairments or blindness to take a virtual tour of campus as they navigate the selection process.
- Enable rising freshman with visual impairments or blindness to orient themselves to campus before they arrive for their first semester.
- Enable all students with visual impairments or blindness to plan new routes of travel at the beginning of each semester.
- Enable visitors with visual impairments or blindness to navigate the campus efficiently and effectively.
Note: The webinar and software is free!
