Some online learning programs have faced legal challenges because of the inaccessibility of their courses to individuals with disabilities. But, what does it mean for a course to be “accessible”? What can be learned from legal challenges regarding e-learning accessibility? What are relevant laws? What are some strategies for making online courses compliant with legal mandates, specifically — and more generally, welcoming to, accessible to, and usable by all students, including those with disabilities, who wish to engage in online learning offerings? In this presentation, Sheryl Burgstahler will answer these questions, focusing on how increasing faculty knowledge can reduce the need for accommodations to be provided to individual students with disabilities.
