The Inclusive Learning Design Handbook uses Github to host its content. The following instructions outline the steps required in order to contribute to the ILDH.
The next section describes the process of editing and contributing content to the ILDH.
You can use Github to directly create or edit content in the ILDH. The following are instructions on how to do this.

The ILDH uses a document syntax called Markdown to format content. Markdown goes into plain text files and gets interpreted by another application to output the correct formatting. In the ILDH, a basic content file looks like this:
--- title: Learner Needs and Preferences subheader: Floe references: Learner Options (aka User Interface Options) layout: default category: Methods --- The key principle behind [inclusive learning](InclusiveLearning.html) is the ability for learning resources to be malleable and transformable with respect to learner needs and preferences. This enables learners who have articulated their particular needs and preferences (whether implicitly or explicitly) to be given learning content in a format that they can fully interact with, understand, and consume (see [Accessibility principles](AccessibilityPrinciples.html) for perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust content). Learners should be able to articulate their needs and preferences, and have returned to them content packaged in a way that meets those requirements. ## Take Away * Users have individual needs and preferences when it comes to content * The presentation and interaction to content should be flexible * Learners should be able to articulate those needs and preferences, and have appropriate content returned * See a <a href="http://build.fluidproject.org/infusion/demos/prefsFramework/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" class="link-external">demo of the current version of Floe Learner Options</a>
The first 6 lines of the text document is called "Front Matter". This is information tells the site how to build its navigation and what content layout to use. In your content you will need these six lines at the start of the file.
subheader: An optional subtitle that appears below the title.
