Creating Accessible Course Materials

Instructors are encouraged to design, create and provide accessible course materials. In doing so, instructors ensure that course material is accessible to the widest possible audience, including but not limited to students with disabilities and/or those class members using assistive technologies.

Accessible Course Materials

Consult the University of Minnesota's Accessible U website for more information on creating accessible course content.

The National Centre on Disability and Access to Education (NCDAE) has created one-page cheatsheets on creating accessible resources.
