My.EOU Portal Current Students Faculty/Staff
If you communicate on behalf of EOU via the university’s social media channels, you should strive to make your content as accessible as possible. Social media is an important part of our outreach to prospective students and employees, and increases engagement with current EOU students, alumni, employees, and athletics fans.
People consume social media in many different ways. Some people primarily use mobile applications, others use web-based versions of these platforms, this content is also embedded into our websites as Iframes. Because there are so many ways to view this content, and because we don’t have control over the implementation of these platforms, we need to be diligent about what we can control, to make our social presence as accessible as possible.
This guide explains how to make our content as accessible as possible, and ways to provide more accessible alternatives, when appropriate.
These guidelines apply to all social media platforms.
Social media platforms change their content editing interfaces regularly. Refer to platform-specific documentation for more information.
