Information on Website Accessibility

People with disabilities should not be excluded from all the benefits the Internet has to offer. This is especially relevant for students with disabilities who would like to enroll in online courses. One of the benefits of distance education is that it allows students with disabilities and students who experience difficulty commuting to classes the ability to take courses online while at home. However, this convenience can easily turn into a problem for students with disabilities if the online classes are not accessible.

WordPress Accessiblity

Websites made with WordPress are quickly becoming the new standard for content management and web design. This is due, in part, to the ease in which individuals with little to no coding knowledge can create and edit content using WordPress's powerful tools. However, while WordPress sites may look flashy, they often require additional work to make them acessible. WordPress offers many first and third party themes that make your site look flashy, but aren't always accessible. If you purchase a theme, make sure it is accessible first. If you can't find accessibility information, email the developer of the theme.
