While at CIT I attended a “birds-of-a-feather” session on accessibility. It seems that schools were all over the place regarding having their web pages and online courses meet accessibility standards. Some institutions allowed anything and everything to be uploaded. Others had strict procedures whereby all web pages and courses need to be approved by the Disabilities Office before upload. Most institutions fell somewhere in between.
I think the best advice I took away was to design web pages using Universal Design. One definition is:
Universal Design for Learning is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn.
