The effort described in this paper is a project designed to partially fulfill requirements from National Science Foundation Grant #9981088 ?Human-Computer Interaction Software Design Curriculum Using Participatory Design Methods,? awarded to Dr. Jerry Weinberg. The goal of the project is the creation of an accessible hypertext markup language (HTML) tutorial for educators wishing to incorporate usability and Participatory Design (PD) methods into a Human Computer Interaction (HCI) course. A portion of the project also involved developing a web page for Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville (SIUE) computer science (CS) students to access course materials. All areas of the site were developed using PD techniques. The pages were then tested for compatibility with multiple browsers, across platforms, and on equipment used by people with disabilities.
