Make Accessible Content to Empower Students

Accessible electronic materials empower students to access and use course content in ways that best meet their needs. For students with disabilities it takes what was previously inaccessible and makes it accessible.

Accessible content is one important aspect of creating an inclusive learning environment.

Included on this page are links to how-to articles, accessibility tools, and tutorials about how to incorporate electronic accessibility principles into electronic materials.

"I see accessibility, at its heart, as a vehicle to promote and enable equal access for our students. In working with faculty and staff I find the greatest accessibility gains are made for our students when we focus on progress over perfection. The key is starting with one small addition; this leads to growth, collaboration, and continuous improvement for student success."
