Design of Webcourse - Accessibility and Usability

We strive to ensure that this webcourse is as aesthetically pleasing, useful, and most of all accessible to the widest audience possible. This webcourse was developed by the National Disability Institute (NDI).

This initiative is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) and the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council, Inc. (FDDC). Portions of this curriculum were developed through grant funding from the HHS Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, Medicaid Infrastructure Grant (MIG) to the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). The webcourse is designed and hosted through a collaboration with the Southeast ADA Center - a project of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University and a member of the ADA National Network.

This webcourse promotes web accessibility and usability in its design and development based on usability research and the following web accessibility guidelines:

Section 508

The Section 508 Standards for Electronic and Information Technology were established by the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) of the U.S. Federal Government. Within Section 508 Subpart B (Technical Standards), the provisions for Web-based Intranet and Internet Information and Applications (1194.22) are addressed in paragraphs (a) through (p).


The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) were established by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
