As schools move toward a digital curriculum they will need to make sure they include multiple medias in balance with unlocked text. Videos were great and a wonderful way to give students a visual and the background knowledge they need. What is lacking is unlocked text. Students with print disabilities are once again locked out of knowledge. Please make the text accessible through voice over. Nice start.
