ONL:03 Sexual Harassment Training

Sexual harassment is one of the major employee complaints filed with state and federal agencies. Besides the threat of potential liability, Santa Rosa Junior College is committed to providing a workplace free of ALL forms of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. 

Even though many employers like Santa Rosa Junior College have a "zero tolerance" policy for any form of harassment, discrimination and retaliation, the courts consistently find that a policy alone is not enough to prevent bad conduct. California now mandates that the most effective way to accomplish prevention is through training. 

Santa Rosa Junior College has arranged for online training from Lawroom, the premier web-based employment law service. The following course will train employees to recognize harassment and discrimination, handle complaints, and avoid retaliation in related workplace situations: 

If you are required to complete the course, you will receive an invitation by email that briefly describes the course and its completion date. The email invitation will provide brief instructions on accessing the course, along with your ID and Password.

If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Jarrett, Manager, Training & Compliance at 527-4822 or email at sjarrett@santarosa.edu

Corrine Haverinen

So you have a PowerPoint presentation and you want to share it with your class online. Or maybe you have a PowerPoint presentation from a face-to-face class that you are now developing for online delivery. There are various ways to deliver the content of your PowerPoint file online to your class, each with it's own issues and with various levels of accessibility.

This tutorial will look at various options for converting PowerPoint presentations to online versions and discuss the accessibility issues of each. Then we will look at an export option using LecShare for creating HTML versions of PowerPoint files.

ONL:06 - Creating Accessible PDFs for Online Use
Corrine Haverinen

HTML pages are the best way to deliver content online because they are the easiest format for making content accessible to everyone including the sight impaired. PDFs offer an easy way to make your documents deliverable and readable over the internet, but making them accessible to the sight impaired offers a few more challenges than HTML pages.

PDFs are a better choice than Word documents because they will not require the viewer to purchase a program to read the file and PDFs have more accessibility features than Word files do.

When using PDFs for required content in an online class, you will need to make sure that they are accessible to disabled students. The online version of a workshop on creating accessible PDFs given by the PC trainers from SRJC's Academic Computing department is at the link provided below.
