This WebQuest was designed as a project in my Instructional Design
class, ETEC 601, at Nova Southeastern University where I am pursuing
a Master of Science in Educational Technology. The project is
also part of the accessibility resource set I am designing for
my colleagues at Sinclair Community College. This is designed
to be a self-paced instructional unit. As such, it does not include
formal assessment tools.
Purpose: This WebQuest has been designed to
introduce faculty and staff to the Section 508 requirements. On
completion of this WebQuest, participants should be able to (a)
understand the basic requirements of Section 508, (b) identify
the various disabilities students might have and how those disabilities
affect students' online learning experience, and (c) find additional
resources about Web accessibility.
Prerequisites: This WebQuest requires no special
skills beyond the ability to find and use information on the Internet.
Time and Resources: This WebQuest may be completed
in less than 30 minutes. Some students may wish to spend more
time using the simulations and researching additional resources.
