Before you begin, consider
- Would I understand the material if I could not hear or see it?
- If I had a mobility impairment, could I participate fully in this class?
- If I had a processing delay or had difficulty hearing, could I revisit the material
- If I use software to read text, are my materials in an accessible electronic version?
- Are there alternatives to visual information?
- Will multimedia have captions or transcripts available?
- Would interactive activities exclude someone with a disability?
