Accessibility becomes more important every year as institutions of higher education extend their reach and course offerings to a variety of students near and far.

Making Your Class Accessible

Educators may or may not know whether online students have disabilities. Students with hidden disabilities may or may not register with the Student Disability Resource Center. So it is essential that courses are designed with accessibility in mind. Course accessibility means that individuals, no matter their disability, can access course materials with substantially equivalent ease of use as students without disabilities. Accessibility also has the potential to benefit all users, including persons where English is their Second Language and individuals with changing abilities due to aging.
