Key Strategies for Making Your Courses Accessible

  • Make textbook decisions as early as possible and before any established campus deadline for textbook adoptions.
  • Request an electronic version and/or additional desk copy of your textbooks. Use publishers who offer electronic copies.
  • Caption all videos used for instruction and provide transcripts for audio-only materials.
  • Provide students with alternative methods to receive lecture materials, including posting lecture notes online, providing transcripts, etc.
  • Be open to communicating with students about their learning styles and using multiple instructional methods to address their needs.
  • Create or convert and post electronic course materials online in accessible formats. Make materials available as soon as possible to facilitate student learning.
  • Provide "clean" copies of class handouts or use materials already in electronic format, and make them available to students before the material is covered in class.
  • Use the campus course / learning management system to post the syllabus and other important class information and course materials electronically.
