Access: Description Module Student Edition

Access: Description Module Student Edition is an overview of description and why it is essential to providing access for individuals who are blind or have low vision. Students will learn what makes up high-quality description and what they should expect from description. They’ll learn about the history of description and what laws promise them equal access to media. The module contains interactive components to engage students as they learn.

The module is designed for students in grades 6-12.

Students who successfully complete the training may download and print a certificate of completion.

To access the modules simply create a free eLearner account with DCMP. If you're already a DCMP member, you can use your existing account to log in. eLearner account holders can access the modules but not DCMP media.

After you create an eLearner account, go to your eLearner Dashboard. There you’ll find a list of modules you can start, return to modules you have in progress, and print certificates for modules you have completed.
