With the shift from print to digital, education leaders must proactively consider the accessibility of digital resources for all students, including students with disabilities. If accessibility features are not designed into digital materials, it will be difficult or impossible for some students to use them due to a range of physical, sensory and/or cognitive disabilities. If materials cannot be used by these students, their ability to learn and achieve will be adversely effected.
The AEM Center provides resources to help educators select and/or create accessible OER content to support learning in inclusive settings. Resources include a set of quality indicators for incorporating OERs into a robust procurement system for AEM.
