Abstract: When designing online instruction, whether it’s a course for K–12 or higher education, a webinar, a YouTube video for education, or professional development training, accessibility is crucial to the conversation. In chapter 3 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 55, no. 4), “Librarians as Online Course Designers and Instructors,” readers will learn about designing online instruction with an eye toward accessibility, assuring that instruction is available for all participants. Highlights will include accessible design, captioning, and other considerations for participants, patrons, and students regardless of ability.
