Your Students with Disabilities
Accommodating students with disabilities is an institutional responsibility. Students with disabilities must first disclose their need for academic accommodations and provide appropriate documentation of their disabilities to the Academic Achievement and Access Center (AAAC) to determine eligibility. Academic accommodations are then implemented by faculty and staff under the guidance of the AAAC's disability specialists. Visit the Faculty Center of the AAAC website for more information on the accommodations process.
Your Online Course Content
Creating accessible course content and electronic documents can make a crucial difference for students with disabilities but can also benefit all of your students. For example, videos that have captions can be used by all students to search for content within that video. PDF documents that are accessible can also be more easily searched by all students.
