AIACC Accessibility Course #aeck-A301: Accessibility 2015: Designing for All
View ADA and California's accessibility requirements in a larger Universal Design context. (Downloadable transcripts and valuable resource material included.)

Based on his firm’s innovative design for The Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, California, Bill Leddy, FAIA, LEED AP discusses how Universal Design profoundly influences us and our sense of confidence, comfort, and control. Bill deftly illustrates how accessible design must address different levels of mobility, vision and hearing, and different emotional, chemical and thermal tolerances. This course is presented in high definition video and is available on computers and most smart phones, tablets and mobile devices. (Video streaming might not be available on some Android devices.) Viewers can also download a course transcript and valuable resource material.
