Abstract

Although writers of online instructional materials begin the development process by focusing on their audience, in fact, it is not always possible to know who the eventual users will be. The Internet has increased the number of non-native speakers who have access to online courses, and therefore created the need for materials that are accessible to learners with various reading levels and different cultural and language backgrounds. Texts designed for native speakers can be made more readable following basic guidelines for clarity and concise presentation and by providing language support.
