Dr. Coombs, CEO of EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information), will discuss his book Making Online Teaching Accessible: Inclusive Course Design for Students with Disabilities. Online courses can reach students with disabilities - if we're willing to be sure to make our course materials accessible. Coombs has some questions for us on our work with students with disabilities - and some tips on making our course materials more accessible. Dr. Coombs has received grants from the NSF and won many awards for his work on accessibility. He has been blind since the age of 8.
Chapter One: Creating a Level Playing Space is available for free from the publisher’s web site.
