Checklist for Faculty

Here is a list of basic items that faculty should do to help ensure that their online instructional materials are accessible as required by Executive Order 926 and the Accessible Technology Initiative. This list is a starting point, and course accessibility should be viewed as an ongoing process.

  • Textbooks which are not available as e-books should be ordered at least six weeks before class begins. The University is committed to make alternative text materials available at the same time text materials are available to non-disabled students. Learn more about our commitment to affordable texts...
  • It is recommended that Course Packs are clean copies from originals without highlighting or handwritten notes so they can be accurately scanned into electronic form for students needing this accommodation. Copies should also be straight aligned, not crooked on the page, and links should be live to full-text journal articles. Contact your subject matter librarian to get help finding high quality source documents for your course pack.
  • Video and audio media must have captions or a transcript available for students who need one. Creation of captions for all videos will be required at a later date. Please contact Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) for questions regarding provisions for captioning.
