5. Accessibility Best Practices Guidance for Content Providers

The core mission of edX is to expand access to education for everyone. We expect courses and course content developed on our platform to be accessible to everyone, regardless of any physical limitation that they might have.

In furtherance of our mission, edX has entered into an agreement with the United States, under which we have agreed to incorporate accessibility into our website (http://www.edx.org), mobile applications, and platform to meet a wide variety of requirements of learners with disabilities and to enable content providers to develop accessible course content.

The topics in this section are intended to help course teams understand how to develop courses that can serve the widest possible audience.


Course teams should familiarize themselves with this best practices guidance and distribute it to any members of their teams who are responsible for creating course content.
