How-To Guide for Creating Accessible Online Learning Content

Online learning is exploding! Most students will take at least one online class before graduating from high school or college.  Today, students with disabilities struggle to use these new tools because websites, learning management systems and course content are not created with them in mind. Ironically, online learning could be a place where students with disabilities can achieve their goals of independence and preparation for careers and jobs. The online world provides the place where disability anonymity is possible and students are honored for their ideas and contributions.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, this guide explores accessibility issues and provides straight forward advice and guidance about creating usable content whether you are a novice or advanced author of course content.
