Web content development grows increasingly robust daily, however, as we grow increasingly reliant on the internet for our informational needs, it is important to ensure that that content can be accessed by a wide range of audience, including those who may have a hard time perceiving web content in its original format. This is particularly important in education as it continues to adapt to the online environs by reaching out to even more students through online courses.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 are recommendations for making online digital content more accessible to people with disabilities. These include visual impairment, hearing loss, learning disabilities, physical and/or cognitive limitations, and speech disabilities. WCAG2.0 criteria are not technology-specific and can be applied to vast array of education technologies.
