Accessibility describes the degree to which a person can access products, services, devices or environments. Accessibility is not only morally and ethically right, it is also a Federal mandate. For our purposes, accessibility will focus on the ease by which all students, regardless of ability, can access course materials and the steps that can be taken to make this happen.
