Accessibility - Basics/Online Course Content
Last Updated 4 years ago

Accessibility is a tangible way we can love our students and acknowledge we are all uniquely made by our loving creator. Please use these standards in your courses and ensure all external content meets these as well.

Start by using the acronym LIST:

Other tips:

  • Make your course accessible to as many as possible - consider Mobility (use of keyboard vs. mouse), Visual, and Auditory needs
  • Font/color/contrast - we recommend you stick with the pre-defined formatted texts
    • Don't use colors as the sole way to communicate things (example - "keywords are in red" could cause trouble to people who are colorblind and wouldn't have a way to recognize keywords)
  • Videos with Closed Captions 
    • YouTube is a great way to get an automatic captioned video
    • Automatic captions will be more accurate if you remember to speak clearly and use a microphone/headset (and quiet room) when possible
    • YouTube also allows you to easily edit the automatic captions 
  • PowerPoints w/recorded lecture - audio and visual
  • PDF readability - text vs image (don't scan an article - if it's a word can't be highlighted/selected, it's not readable by a screenreader)
