Abstract

Currently, there is a quiet movement that is gaining momentum among educators, students, and legislators to evaluate and enforce accessibility standards, which have been legislated for individuals with disabilities in the distance education arena. The purpose of this study is to collect data in order to determine an approximate number of students with disabilities that are enrolled in online courses, certifications, and degree programs since such data is not collected by any state or federal agency, private or public. The data will be used to publish information on the approximate number of such students in an effort to emphasize the importance of ensuring that institutions of higher learning that are committed to distance education are aware of accessibility compliance and can take steps toward meeting all accessibility standards.
