Accessibilityalso known as a11y—is the practice of designing things so that everyone can benefit equally, regardless of ability. 

In e-learning, the term accessible means the content is designed for all learners—including those with auditory, visual, mobility, or cognitive disabilities.

Accessibility standards—such as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)—and laws—like Section 508—provide guidance and ensure all learners can access online materials equally.
