Seeking digital materials that are accessible and widely usable by students with a variety of strengths and challenges can be difficult. If digital materials are not designed to be accessible from the outset, they are difficult or impossible to retrofit. Thus, it is important to select and acquire digital materials with multiple options that increase the usability of the materials for a wide variety of learners, including those with disabilities. This session will provide an overview of features to look for when considering and purchasing digital educational materials. Time will be devoted to addressing questions and comments from participants.
