By taking simple steps in advance of teaching, educators can greatly expand the appeal of instruction on all levels, from K-12 school through colleges and universities to adult or continuing education programs. Using disks, Web pages, language translation software, listservs, and other steps can lower the cost of accommodating to the diverse needs of students with disabilities, older students, students from different cultures, and students with different learning styles, while at the same time enhancing the quality of instruction.
