Hello, I'm Amanda Carpenter
I created accessiblecoursematerials.com for fulfillment of Cal State University, Fullerton's Master of Science in Instructional Design and Technology (MSIDT) program. Working in higher education for a disabled students program is where the idea for this site came about, and the phrase "Not Accessible, Not Acceptable" was born, because when course materials that are not accessible are posted online, students using assistive technology cannot complete them, that's not acceptable. I wanted to create a central hub to help guide educators in creating accessible course materials, as well as promote an understanding of why accessibility is important. Whether you are just beginning to get your feet wet in the subject, or if you're an accessibility expert, I hope you will find this site as a valuable resource to accompany you on your journey of creating accessible course materials.
