Accessibility

Accessibility and usability must be a core component of all of the materials and content we create, to allow everyone access to information and resources.

At the same time, creating accessible content requires specific IT skills and a new way of thinking about content creation.

We partner with experts across IU to develop and provide training resources to build critical IT skills that enable accessibility.

Learn more about the various training opportunities in the following sections of this page.
