Course 7: Developing Your Plan

Accessible Materials Made Right #7: Develop Your Plan

This course presents a series of questions to consider as you or your district or organization plan for digital accessibility. The approach to assembling a team, reviewing resources, revising resources, and clarifying future resource development needs to include defined goals and timelines that are reasonable to achieve and move you forward. If you work as part of a team or organization, those goals and timelines should also reflect input from the group. This increases shared ownership and accountability.

The purpose of the AMMR series is to increase awareness of what makes digital content accessible and why it really matters. The series will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to begin creating accessible documents. This course focuses on using intentional planning and design to help people who would not otherwise be able to access electronic content.
