Proactively addressing the needs of all learners enrolled in your course will make a big difference in creating an inclusive learning environment. Accessibility is essential for some and beneficial for all.

To assist you in designing your course with accessibility in mind, we have developed the following resources utilizing Quality Matters, Universal Design for Learning, and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

If you have questions, please email the Digital Accessibility Team.

The resources are not an exhaustive guide to accessibility but instead provides information on skills needed to build accessible courses.
