At the University of Houston, we seek to implement the principles of universal design for learning and aim for inclusivity in all our courses and learning materials. To that end, we have created this space on Instruction at UH to make available for faculty articles, tutorials, and resources that highlight and give direction about designing for accessibility. We will frequently update the content here in order to reflect the latest best practices in the area of universal design for learning, web accessibility, video captioning, and much more. Please return frequently to view updated information.

All University web pages should be accessible in some form to those with disabilities, be they technological barriers (slow modems) or physical barriers (users with impaired vision). This is not just State law, but good sense: the more users who can access your information the better.
