Accessibility guidelines help ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to course materials, which is an important aspect of inclusive education. Adherence to accessibility standards can make a significant difference in the ability of students with disabilities to participate fully in their classes and understand course content. By providing materials in a format compatible with assistive technology and following best practices for design and delivery, instructors can help remove barriers that might otherwise prevent students with disabilities from fully engaging with course content. This not only benefits individual students, but also creates a more inclusive learning environment for all students, which can enhance the overall learning experience for everyone in the class.
ITS Student Employees have created a few videos and supporting documents to help faculty preparing their materials for improved accessibility. Faculty may use these resources freely.
