Instructional designers often fail to consider issues of accessibility when creating educational materials. As a result, students with disabilities frequently encounter physical, sensory, or cognitive barriers that prevent them from accessing, engaging, and succeeding in learning activities. This volume will examine issues of accessibility and how designers can improve the quality of educational materials by embedding supports that anticipate the special learning needs of diverse learners.
