This is a very good resource for accessible learning. The website provides simple yet effective ways to make courses easier to navigate and gives students ample amount of opportunity to learn in a clear, concise environment. I especially like the examples included with each step, making the content very understandable.

This resource provides 10 steps towards accessibility that will have a great impact on the classroom. Each step has clear directions, suggested practices, and extra resources. This does a good job of efficiently explaining the process, but the reader needs to appreciate that implementing will take time.

Disability is part of the natural diversity of human life. It touches all of us, whether through our own individual experience or that of a family member, neighbor, friend or colleague. As such, we all have a role in—and benefit to gain from—advancing equality for people with disabilities in all sectors of society, including the workplace.
