Chapter 2: Democratizing course access
Restricted access

In an increasingly digital world, accessibility involves addressing the digital divide and the various ways it cuts people off from the classroom as well as specific adaptations to accommodate disability. The two aspects of accessibility that this chapter will address are how much bandwidth a Learning Management System course site takes up and the screens and devices that students are using to access that course site, including individual adaptations. Layered into that, though, are aspects of web development, disability rights, equity, curb cutter effects, and materials sourcing. This chapter also includes a brief and entry level coding guide for creating navigable plain text content - and the reasons you might want to.
