Accessibility is Not a Feature: Simple Steps to Support Students’ Access to Course Materials

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 19–22, 2024.

Technology is incredible and greatly enhances access, but it isn’t always reliable. Have you ever had a Monday where everything that could go wrong with your computer did? Learning management systems (LMS) like Canvas are a great way to disseminate materials, but they are only as accessible as the materials we upload to them.

LMS themselves are an accessible skeleton built with web standards, but if your uploaded content isn’t accessible, some students may still struggle. Fortunately, making your materials more accessible, thereby increasing accessibility of Canvas is straightforward. Ensuring your MS Word, PDF and PowerPoint documents are accessible can significantly reduce learning barriers. Let’s explore some basic steps to improve accessibility and make learning more inclusive with just a few clicks.
