Web accessibility for online class

As of Spring term 2012, the content in all new online courses (including content that is linked to from the course) must adhere to the PCC accessibility guidelines. There are just a few critical things that need to be integrated into the course development process to make PCC courses accessible to all online students. Accessible courses serve a broad audience that includes, students with disabilities, ESOL students, students with different learning styles and students who use emerging mobile technologies.
