This paper provides an overview of how and why online courses are made accessible for people with disabilities. As online learning becomes more popular and with legal mandates requiring accessibility, designers and instructors of courses should be aware of the possibilities for accommodating diverse needs. Four scenarios for accommodating students who are blind, deaf, have learning disabilities or mobility impairments are provided.
