There is a lot of information (and misinformation) out there about what institutions need to do to ensure that their online courses are accessible to all students, including those with disabilities. It can be overwhelming, especially when the stakes seem so high and the path forward is as clear as mud. Let's take a look at the most common myths about accessibility to debunk them as well as strategize how best to address them.
