Ada compliance – best practices 2013

  1. 1. ADA COMPLIANCE – BEST PRACTICES
  2. 2. ACCESSIBILITY MEANS… Students with disabilities can use the Web. People with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, interact, and contribute to the Web. In short: we have the responsibility to provide resources that are accessible to everyone. Electronic resources need to follow principles of universal design, meaning that the creation of websites, online materials, and online courses have to be developed with the objective of meeting the needs of everyone.
