Accessibility

When developing your course it's important to think about how to make your course accessible to all learners specifically those that may have a disability, but when designing a course with Universal Design for Learning principles you can reach a wide variety of learners regardless of their (dis)ability.

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) which is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn. (CAST Center for Applied Special Technology)

 

Course accessibility refers to the creation and display of the course and its content which can rely on using technology effectively and efficiently during the creation process.

 

If you are interested in earning a certificate and badges for accessibility and Universal Design for Learning register for the self-paced course "Accessibility: Designing and Teaching Courses for All Learners" on Canvas that was created by SUNY Buffalo State & SUNY Empire State through a SUNY IITG.

 

SUNY FACT2 Council formed a task group to promote the importance of accessible content.
