On last week’s episode of Friendly Disruption, we talked about the impact of color blindness on learners. I realize that not everyone enjoys podcasts, so I thought this bit of information deserved its own blog post. I had no idea that around 10% of our students may struggle seeing color. Color Enhancer is a free Chrome extension that makes it easier for people with color blindness to differentiate between colors on web pages.
Please view the brief screencast I put together that shows how to use Color Enhancer. We’ve pushed this extension out to all students and staff members. As always, let me know if you have questions or additional ideas.
