Online Education and Website Accessibility

The Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has published a short webinar on YouTube titled “Online Education and Website Accessibility“.

The video is approximately 7 minutes long and covers basic institutional responsibility as well as why accessibility is a necessary consideration as colleges and universities are transitioning many classes and instructional resources to the online environment.

It does not tell you how to make your Canvas course accessible, but may be helpful to some in providing additional context for why accessibility is still a necessity even with these rapid changes in how we support students and our campus community.
