I'm by no means an expert in all things Digital Accessibility -- but I am learning, because I think that it is vitally important that I do the things that are easy for me to do, which can have a huge impact for all of my potential learners and colleagues. To that end, this page provides selections of some of the resources that I have created related to things that I do already, and provides some useful tips and tricks to increase your compliance with basic digital accessibility standards.
