Claro or Flow?
While the Accessibiltiy principles and examples will be presented and practiced in a Flow project, as responsive content lends itself towards accessibility needs better, most aspects taught in class can be applied to Claro projects. In Claro the key accessibility difference is in page order, which the instructor can cover if you have questions. With Flow and Claro, virtually all actions, triggers and features are identical, with the primary differences being in how pages are navigaed, designed and operate.
