Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

The availability of high-quality OER plays an important role in addressing equity issues in education. For its full potential to be realized for every learner, however, OER must be more than openly licensed at a reasonable cost. They must also be usable across the variability learners bring to any learning environment. For this to be the case, OER must be designed according to accessibility best practices that ensure they will work with the assistive technologies many learners use to access the curriculum. The goal of the Protocol for Curating Accessible OER is to provide detailed yet easy to implement techniques for evaluating the accessibility of OER developed with Open Author.
