Building Accessible Courses

Individual student accommodation remains an important part of creating equitable access to online education. However, there are several proactive steps faculty can take to build accessible content and incorporate universal design strategies to enhance the accessibility of their online course.

Accessible online content can be compared to physical wheelchair ramps and accessible entryways, it provides a digital pathway and allows all students to enter and utilize the course.

When content is accessible, all students, regardless of background or ability, have equitable access to the course.
