Whether you are designing a new web application or making revisions to an existing site, accessibility is a key part of the process. Given that approximately 1 in 5 people in the U.S. and a total of 1 billion people worldwide have a disability, ensuring that your online presence is usable for those with disabilities and those using assistive devices allows you to expand your audience while ensuring compliance with legal requirements and best practices. In this course, you will learn how to integrate accessibility into your planning, design, and testing processes.

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand the standards and best practices for web accessibility.
  • Gain hands-on experience with accessibility testing tools and techniques.
  • Learn how individuals using assistive devices interact with the web.
  • Develop strategies for integrating accessibility into their existing design and user testing workflows.

This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in User Experience (UX), but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
