This course covers digital web accessibility. The goal of web accessibility is to ensure that all people, including those with disabilities, have equal use and enjoyment of websites and web content.

Creating an accessible internet, so everyone is able to participate in the new public square is the responsibility of all who create digital content. Being able to access the web and participate in information sharing is truly a human right and must be taken into account when creating digital content and websites.

Learn web accessibility basics, WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust), why accessibility matters, legal issues and how to evaluate website accessibility.

There are quizzes and assignments to help you learn and think about accessibility in your life.
