If you attended the Web Coordinators Workshop on April 30, then you had the opportunity to hear firsthand from the EERE Web team about EERE's work in Web standards and guidelines, social media, and multimedia. And if you didn't have the chance to watch in person, you can now read the presentations online!

You can now read all about the April 2009 Web Coordinators Workshop on the Communication Standards Web site. This page includes the presentations, handouts, and group activities from the workshop. It also includes links to all of the standards that were discussed.

During this workshop, we discussed several new standards that were released shortly before the training, some of which you may be interested in: 

  • Multimedia Standards: New standards and guidelines for audio files, Flash animations, standalone Flash animations, and Videos.
  • Text Versions: Instructions on how to write a text version, which is required to make all multimedia files meet the accessibly requirements of Section 508.

If you have any questions about the training or the new standards and guidelines, feel free to leave a comment!
