Assignment Overview

Throughout the semester you have been learning to create videos, documents, online articles and WordPress websites so that they are accessible to all. The overall goal of the course is to teach you that creating accessible content is the right thing to do, not just for individuals with disabilities, but for all individuals; and the right way to create accessible content is from the ground up. Our hope is that moving forward all of your content will be created in an accessible format.

For our final assignment we will be inviting in members of the disability community to audit our work and see if it truly is accessible.
