Designing for Online Accessibility

This micro-course will help you ensure that each of your students gets the maximum benefit from the digital resources you use to teach your online courses. Remember that many accessibility challenges are the same in physical and online learning environments. But they are addressed differently. As you work your way through this micro-course, keep each of your students in mind, particularly those with specific disabilities. One of the most important benefits of designing for online accessibility is that adjustments made to meet the needs of individual students will ultimately benefit all students.

Learning Targets:

  • Create your own checklist for online accessibility and use it to identify opportunities for improving equitable access.
  • Create one document and one video that meet accessibility guidelines.
