Accessibility in Online Courses
Welcome to the Online Accessibility section of our website! This section will provide tips and resources to help you create an accessible eLearning environment.
What is Online Accessibility?
Web Accessibility, according to the World Wide Consortium (W3C), "means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web."
Why Online Accessibility?
Creating an accessible eLearning environment provides students with equal opportunities to learn. Without accessible content, some students will not be able to understand what is being taught. Not only is accessibility the right thing to do, but it is the law.
