508 Compliance: Creating Accessible Online Learning

Anita Horsley, originally presented 8 October 2014

Nearly 1 in 5 people, approximately 56 million, in the U.S. have some sort of disability, reported by the Census Bureau. Developing accessible online courses is important because not only is it the right thing to do to reach more learners; but it can also be a legal requirement. In the US, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires that government and educational organizations make online learning accessible (including eLearning).
