CSUN Accessible Templates

Note that accessibilty training as well as software training is neccessary to implement these templates correctly.


If you are a beginner with little or no web development experience please see your local technical support staff.

They will assist you in setting up your Contribute account and populating it with accessible templates as well as provide pathways to training resources available on campus.

The University is providing 508 compliant web page templates to assist in the creation of web pages whose content can be accessed by all users.

By using these Dreamweaver created templates in conjunction with Contribute, faculty and staff can engage in accessible web development. Applicable 508 requirements have been built into the template structure.


The template download kit includes the following items:

  • The full roster of templates both generic and "pre-populated", i.e. Syllabus, Bio, Project and Schedule pages.
  • Instructions for using Contribute
  • Customizing Options
  • Associated Graphic files
  • Web Best Practices Document

Adobe Contribute can be utilized to modify the contents of the templates either as a standalone application or through an access "key" provided by your local web administrator.

Although other methods can be used, the ATI training utilizes Adobe Contribute.

The templates come in various web page layout options.
