Introduction

It is not uncommon for higher education courses to have a web presence. Instructors can post assignments, notes, presentations, and tests; and can communicate via email and video conference on the web. There is great potential for using the internet as a conduit for transferring knowledge to students, but care must be taken to ensure that the information is accessible to a wide variety of students. This module addresses basic web accessibility and is designed primarily for faculty members who wish to create a more accessible web experience for their students with and without disabilities. Resources for more technologically advanced users are provided.
