Digital accessibility refers to making digital content and sites accessible to students with disabilities, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other regulatory requirements. Institutions can make this happen through a variety of tools, including policy, design, training, and instructional practices.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn.
MHEC is working to assist states and institutions address digital accessibility needs through convenings, stories, and the sharing of resources.
