Description & Coverage
Description:

As the multifaceted environment of the Internet continues to evolve, web accessibility has become a major issue in terms of providing effective communication to the public. Although web accessibility guidelines exist, there are some academic institutions and areas of industry that have not developed guidelines to ensure that web documents are accessible. The primary objective of Design and Implementation of Web-Enabled Teaching Tools is to explore the myriad of issues regarding web accessibility, specifically focusing on those areas that cover the design and implementation of web-enabled teaching tools.

Reviews and Testimonials

Mary Hricko has put together a set of exceptionally high quality material on issues related to web [content] accessibility. With more than 25 per cent of Internet users having some sort of disability, it is a major concern for all educators using the web for education and training. Design and Implementation of Web-Enabled Teaching Tools is an excellent effort to promote the cause of accessible websites for people with disabilities.

– Sanjaya Mishra, Indira Gandhi National Open University, India

This book is a "must have book" for any institution with a distance learning system. Not only is it the only such book available, but it is comprehensive and practical. Designing to include students with disabilities is a legal mandate, and the courts are beginning to scrutinize schools and universities for compliance. There are explanations of how to make your system fully accessible and an extensive list of resources for anyone looking for even more information.

– Norman Coombs, EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information), USA

Design and Implementation of Web-Enabled Teaching Tools deals with both how to design an accessible course interface and how to create readily accessible [content]. While the list of books on the topic of creating accessible Web sites is growing, Design and Implementation of Web-Enabled Teaching Tools is the first work actually focused on providing accessible Web tools for online learning. It is a must read for anyone involved in administering online learning activities. Although there still is room for a more systematic presentation, these nine chapters and three appendices contain a wealth of invaluable resources and insights. Universities and colleges have been rushing headlong into Web-based learning with little planning and even less awareness of the specialized needs of students and faculty with disabilities.
