Each attendee is able to make accessibility adjustments in their profile including vision impaired, cognitive disability, ADHD friendly, Blind user (screen-reader), and keyboard navigation (motor) profiles. There are also many options for users to adjust content, color, and orientation.
Will presentations be available after the event?
The GLS hosts three (3) days of high-quality live and pre-recorded content available on-demand during the event and for the 30 days following the event. Please keep in mind, registration will close once the event has concluded. Be sure to secure your access and take advantage of this opportunity to hone your skills and make the most of the Global Learning Summit!
