Circular logo of University of MarylandEver wondered what a course outline for Universal Usability might look like? The course outline from the University of Maryland College of Information Studies is just one example. The topic is online communications. It gives an idea of what students are being taught and the projects they undertake.

The reading list at the end has a comprehensive list of publications that could be of interest.  The introduction to the course reads as follows:

“This course follows Diverse Populations, Inclusion and Information (LBSC 620) and builds on the concepts of that course. This course focuses on the use and challenges of information services and technologies to provide equal experiences and outcomes to all users. Laws, standards, approaches, component concepts, access needs, and technologies in relation to physical and online information environments.”
