Accessibility Module Activity:
Using what you've learned about accessibility and universal design, write a brief statement evaluating how effectively an open resource you currently use, have used, or are considering using meets the standards outlined in the chapter. If it meets or exceeds the standards, explain why; if it does not, explain how it could be improved.
