Online Learning with Students, Staff, and Faculty with Disabilities: Knowing the Legal Landscape of Web Accessibility

Monday, December 10, 2012


Join Malcolm Brown, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative director, and Veronica Diaz, ELI associate director, as they moderate this webinar with Cyndi Rowland. Institutions of higher education want to use the power of the Internet with faculty, staff, and students. Failing to create an architecture that can be accessed by those with disabilities can create a climate of discrimination. It is vital that those in higher education understand the legal landscape with respect to online accessibility. This session will describe current law and court cases and assist institutions that want to do the right thing and document it at the same time.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand U.S. laws that pertain to the accessibility of web content in higher education today
  • Identify other legal issues (e.g., state or international law) that may pertain to your institution
  • Understand the current legal climate and recent court cases regarding web accessibility in postsecondary education
  • Determine what you can do to put your institution on the best path and how you can document your good faith efforts during a transition to accessibility
