This is a working checklist to help improve student access to and success in your online course. The checklist focuses upon common social justice access issues found in course design and implementation, and allows you to see if your course helps prevent access concerns. Note there are three sheet tabs at the bottom of the file page corresponding with major categories of online course design and social justice issues. Links to other resources on the web are provided for initial guidance for some checklist items; they are not meant to endorse any particular products.
