How to use learning technology to help ensure your courses are inclusive and accessible

Making our teaching resources and our use of learning technology as accessible as possible, has obvious advantages for disabled students, but is of potential benefit to all.

There are different ways to achieve this. The following advice is for those seeking to find the most appropriate ways of increasing the accessibility of their practice. The pragmatic choices you make about which approach to take to your own teaching materials remains with you, but there is guidance available which can help with commonly used technologies. You may wish to discuss with colleagues as part of a course or teaching team when you design your course for delivery.
