Accessibility Resources provides information for ensuring student accessibility. For practical tips on how design contributes to effective learning, please read “The importance of design on effective learning”.

Ensuring we are attending to the needs of all students can be difficult but necessary. Oswal, S. K., & Meloncon, L.

However, utilizing good pedagogy and wise practices in course design help to support teaching and learning in the online environment.
