Creating accessible OER

When you create OER, there's an opportunity to make them accessible which shouldn't be missed. The guidelines and tools are out there to help you make your content accessible to everybody, irrespective of any reading / visual / motor impairment(s) or none.

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework by CAST includes "a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all individuals equal opportunities to learn, including Students with Disabilities" (AHEAD, 2017).

Inclusivity and accessibility are key principles mentioned in UNESCO's call for increased adoption of OER in knowledge sharing. h
