8.5. Accessible Course Facilitation

Student Accommodation Procedure

You may have a student who needs a specific accommodation. Common accommodations in online courses include extended time on tests or assignments, material in alternate digital formats, closed captioning or described video, or text-to-speech, and screen reader accessibility. Students are responsible for getting an accommodations letter from their disability services office. This letter will detail the accommodations that should be provided to the student. Students are not required to reveal the nature of their disability. Contact the disability services office, if you have questions about implementing a student’s accommodation.
