Michigan State University, the eighth-biggest college in the country, recently completed the largest web redesign project in the institution’s history, including the roll-out of a new homepage with flash and dazzle. Unfortunately, that flash and dazzle came with a hefty problem: weak accessibility compliance. Michigan State’s web team spent the following months completing a time-consuming overhaul of the entire site, emerging with a new understanding and appreciation for functional web accessibility. In this presentation you will hear our story, our mistakes, and how we got better.
