Geography Map Quiz

How would an instructor create an accessible mapping quiz for an online geography course? They are currently providing an image with a number of locations with numbers identifying different locations, and then a list of potential answers per a Matching question format (in Canvas). We assume that a "hot spot" type of question cannot be made accessible.

Are there any LTI's that might aid in this endeavor?

    Hi Dave

    Yes, these can be made accessible. Are you able to provide an example or a link to an example? Accessibility would encompass more than just accessibility for people without vision.

    Also, what is the aim of the course? Is it something that only people with vision can complete (eg. a driving course), or could there be vision-impaired students?

    Cheers

    I think the aim of the course is just to be able to identify common regions on a map. I do not know if this is something that would be expected of vision impaired students...good question. 

    Below is a sample map used in the question text, and you can see how the Matching Question format question is laid out at: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12733-415243381

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Some good examples and principles can be found in our Interactive Maps Factsheet. Does this answer your query?

    Cheers

    Thank you for this. I am not sure this guidance would be useful to an instructor or not, but I will pass it on. It sounds like there should be more proactive accommodation available from the software platform itself.
