Distance learning allows students to pursue a higher education anywhere at any time. However, many distance learning courses may not be accessible to students with disabilities. When planning and developing a distance learning course, faculty and instructional designers should take into consideration design guidelines for assuring accessibility for students with disabilities. Faculty may contact their campus Disability Service Provider for more information.
