Some links for organising remote work, like remote meetings, video presentations, online teaching, and web content accessibility
Here are couple of suggestions collected from a variety of sources and personal experience (see detailed suggestions from University of Washington on accessible online meetings here)
- Encourage participants state their name and institution each time they speak.
- Ask participants limit the background noise as much as possible and mute themselves when not speaking.
- When URLs or other resources are mentioned, have someone designated to type them into the chat window – or follow up with participants after the meeting.
- Allow folks to ask questions either by (1) using a hand raising function and asking verbally or (2) by typing in the chat.
- Encourage folks to look at their name in the participant list and change it to their First Last if it defaulted to something else.
- When possible, have someone manage the chat and another person lead the meeting. Depending on the size of the meeting, it can be challenging to do both.
