Accessibilty Tip #2:
How do I provide a stable link or permalink to a journal article?

Accessibility Tip #3:
How do I format heading in written text?
Formatted document headings on written text are essential to students who use assistive technologies to navigate and read your content. This applies to PDFs, Word, Google Docs, Moodle, blogs, web pages, email, etc. Without formatted headings, your written text comes across jumbled together and is difficult to navigate for those students. These headings also improve readability for everyone and save you time later when making style changes to your content. This visual tutorial demonstrates how to use and customize headings in Word, Google Docs, and Moodle.
