Course Material Accessibility
Faculty Resource Page
If you require training or a course evaluation on your iLearn course materials , please use the button below to create a work order ticket.
Accessible instructional materials are designed or converted in a way that makes them usable across the widest range of student variability regardless of format (print, digital, graphical, audio, video)
Online course best practices:
- Order & identify textbooks and course readers early.
- Learn how to make course materials accessible; take training!
- Provide syllabi in electronic format & add heading styles for document structure.
- Post PDF documents that are clean and readable, not a scanned image of a PDF.
- Make sure pictures, tables and graphs have alt (descriptive) text.
- Use captioned videos whenever possible.
- Use Ally dials to assist with document accessibility
