Digital and web accessibility in higher education is an important compliance issue. The proactive work of accessibility teams include the practice of designing and developing digital content, including websites, applications, and other online platforms. The goal of accessibility is to eliminate barriers that may prevent individuals with disabilities from interacting with and navigating digital content on an institution's web site and learning systems.

EDUCAUSE Accessibility Guidelines This guide is a working draft developed by the IT Accessibility Constituent Group at the request of EDUCAUSE staff. It is designed to provide guidance to authors, reviewers, and publishers associated with EDUCAUSE Review and to the larger EDUCAUSE community, on how to ensure that web content is accessible to all users, including those with disabilities.

Web Accessibility Initiative WAI, in coordination with organizations around the world, pursues accessibility of the Web through five primary areas of work: technology, guidelines, tools, education and outreach, and research and development.
