HWG Course D201: Accessible Web Design

Start Date: April 22, 2002 (7 weeks)

The HWG's web accessibility course features information

on Section 508 requirements, access devices, the W3C's

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, and more! This

introductory course will change the way you think about the

Web, and ensure that as broad an audience as possible can use

the sites you create, regardless of disability, browser type,

or access method.

For more information, please see the D201 course information

site at:




The schedule of topics for this course is as follows:

Week 1: An Introduction to Web Accessibility

Week 2: Removing Accessibility Barriers

Week 3: Browsers and Assistive Technology

Week 4: Removing More Accessibility Barriers

Week 5: Nonstandard Access Devices

Week 6: Software for Accessible Design

Week 7: Setting A Web Accessibility Standard

Primary reading material is from Mike Paciello's book WEB

Accessibility for People with Disabilities, with additional

selected reading from the web. The complete syllabus is

available at:




Here's what some past students of the course are saying

about D201: Accessible Web Design:

"I have no problem praising HWG's Accessible Web Design course.

The course was thorough and enlightening. I commented on the

class with a friend who had taken another accessible design

course and he was impressed by the level of this course.

Apparently the course that he had taken did not possess the

depth of discussion on accessibility issues nor the practical

implementation of techniques that this course did. Consequently,

he bought Paciello's book and is planning to enroll in a future

session of this course." --Clay Berglund

"Before I took this course, accessible web design was a confusing

mishmash of federal guidelines and recommendations. Now I'm

coding sites that meet guidelines..." --Gillian Murrey

"This course was a great enrichment to my knowledge about Web

accessibility, because it forced me to put my hands on existing

tools rather than just read about them or discuss them verbally."

--Gottfried E. Zimmermann

"Kynn and Liz provided resources and food for thought which,

along with the inputs of my classmates, helped me formulate a

draft policy for web accessibility at LCC and an 'attack plan'

to make existing sites more accessible." --Anita F. Lees
