We cover effective practices to increase inclusion and avoid some of the common accessibility issues that can arise in an online course.

We also discuss how inclusive course materials can help all students, including students without disabilities.
This course will appeal to those who want both a broad overview of the range of accessibility considerations and also a step-by-step guide of how to check documents for accessibility, caption a video, or prepare course content for non-visual users.
