A literature review is often the beginning of a larger research project. But does that mean you should just dive right in?
Stumbling upon new and unexpected sources in your research can feel great in the beginning, but tends to be stressful as the deadline looms. What feels better is knowing you've minimized the likelihood of gaps in your literature review. Depending on the breadth of your project, it may be a good idea to develop a short research plan where you define the scope of your research and plot out your approach before you begin. After you've done so, check in with your instructor or a librarian to see if there's anything missing. Not only will this start you out on the right foot, but it will also give you a better idea of the time commitment you'll need.
Subject: HTML Programming
Why do I need to worry about accessibility in my web site? My target audience won't need it.
Thinking about accessibility is incredibly important when crafting your HTML, for many reasons. For starters, you never know who will be accessing your website, and you want to make sure that as many people can benefit from it as possible. Another thing to keep in mind is that it's just more professional. If you're making a web design portfolio, it's a good idea to highlight and show off your ADA-compliant skills to potential employers. Finally, thinking about accessibility can also make your web pages more structurally sound in terms of semantics, which will increase the cross-functionality of your website and open doors for further developments down the line.
