Paper focuses on the design and development of a prototype online course on how to create accessible online courses. The learning strategies include a variation of a cognitive apprenticeship model, which was created via feedback from face-to-face workshops. Learner-centered design is the main component of the online workshop, which includes instruction on the following accessibility components and criteria: (1) the utilization of high contrast text and background; (2) the exclusion of unnecessary graphics or icons; (3) tips for people who use assistive technology; (4) how to avoid the use of PDF files; (5) the inclusion of direct links to other course areas; (5) the inclusion of text transcript for online videos; and (6) how to provide easy access to resources to learning activities. This paper was presented at the ED-MEDIA 2002 World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications.
