3. Creating accessible Web sites.

Employing principles of universal design when constructing your Web site can increase your site accessibility for a range of potential users including students with hearing, visual, and mobility impairments. Checking for Web site accessibility before you assign or recommend Web sites can help eliminate potential barriers. Users with slow connections and modems or older equipment may also be able to access these Web sites with less difficulty.
