Accessible e-learning and the ADDIE framework

It’s important not only to have accessibility guidelines and policies, but to also have e-learning development processes in place. This book chapter provides overview information about accessibility laws, the history of universal design for learning (UDL), and some of the goals and challenges of providing accessible e-learning, but where it really shines is in providing a list of processes within the ADDIE framework that can be modified to include accessibility measures.
