- [Voiceover] There is legislation in place that requires educators and employers to ensure that everyone has access to resources and opportunities. This course is not intended to act as legal advice. In one of the videos I'll briefly mention some of these laws, however I suggest taking the time to learn more about them. The legislation that you're required to follow will depend on where you live, as there is often federal and state laws that require you to provide accessible resources to everyone. The purpose of this course is to introduce you to some of the important factors that you need to consider when making learning accessible, as well as to explain some best practices.
While I hope that you're motivated to make learning more accessible for everyone because it's the right thing to do, remember that there is legislation in place that requires you to do so.
