Abstract: As evident through recent litigation, Institutions of Higher Education are increasingly being held accountable for the federal mandates on ensuring equivalent access to online education for students with disabilities. This has strong implications for incorporating strategies to enhance accessibility and universal design into all courses from the beginning stages of development. The responsibility for this lies primarily with the Faculty Instructors and Instructional Designers. This Case Study demonstrates how the accessibility of an Information Systems course was improved through development as a fully online course.
Keywords: accessibility, instructional design, object orientation, software engineering, universal design
