Released: September 2002
Status: Project deferred.

Working with the Office of Disability Services and the Chemistry Department, this website is a prototype which offers an example of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in practice. UDL provides a set of design principles that make websites more accessible to users with disabilities. Page content is displayed using alternate views, video annotations offer synchronized text, key combinations move users from one point to another within the page, images have "description" tags, and navigation is standardized throughout the site.
