Web accessibility is one of the most critical issues facing higher education. Between the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act, most institutions of higher education – both public and private – are required by law to provide closed captions to students who are deaf or hard of hearing. However, while the need for accessibility is universal, most colleges and universities approach closed captioning in very different ways.

We’ve curated five essential resources to help build a roadmap to web accessibility that any college or university can follow as we move into 2016. These briefs cover accessibility law, grants and funding, and DIY resources as well as case studies that examine how numerous institutions of higher education have successfully implemented closed captioning policies.
