How accessible is the courseware system you are using? Who is responsible
for its accessibility? Just as instructors use different communication
styles in a room, they can do the same online. How can you present online
in ways to enhance the accessibility of your presentation for your students
with disabilities? How can you do this without dumbing down the learning
experience for other students?

Anyone registering for this 4-part Webinar series in January will receive
the Barrier-free E-learning Handbook as a bonus. You can see its table of
