This library guide will cover OER accessibility best practices, various OER platform accessibility instructions (LibGuides, WordPress), how to create accessible content (word, PDFs, videos, audio, math equations), and how to select accessible OER content to reuse and remix in courses. The material provided here were collected for a workshop given on October 22, 2019 by the CUNY Accessibility Librarian, Amy Wolfe, titled "OER and Accessibility: What You Need to Know."
According to the CUNY Accessibility Librarian, Amy Wolfe:
"The web's importance in our daily lives continues to grow. The internet is the new public square. It is a place where ideas, information, education, entertainment, and commerce are taking place. OER are definitely part of this new public square. OER is about building and sharing knowledge with as many people as possible. Accessibility is part of that mission and means making your OER usable by people of all abilities."
