  • Use text equivalents (alt tags and tooltips) for the majority of images and links
  • Provide simple, consistent site navigation
  • Provide a breadcrumb trail on all pages to show the path from the homepage to the current page
  • Use html heading tags to convey page structure
  • Include a site search box on each page (a course-specific search is included in the courses section)
