Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Facilitated Content (e.g., EDUCAUSE Connect) session
Common sense approaches to web and mobile usability have persisted for some time but accessible usability has fallen far short. While the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provides a framework for accessible design, designers and developers often understand little about what persons with disabilities find intuitive and therefore add the required ingredients but frequently leave the user with an inelegant UX.

Outcomes: Understand and be able to articulate the current state of the web and mobile usability *Extend web and mobile usability to WCAG *Evaluate accessible Web and Mobile designs and identify how the UX can be made elegant
