Accessibility Guides

We have built some guides and provided links to others which illustrate some best practices for various types of instructional materials, like Word documents, PowerPoints, PDFs, and videos. These guide will also provide links to some text-based and video tutorials.

In making acessible documents, start with your syllabus by using the template provided by the Faculty Development Center. 

ACCESSIBLE SYLLABUS TEMPLATEOpens in new window

This template aligns with UPS. Feel free to download the template and populate it with your class content. It can be modified to reflect your expectations, as well as those of your department. Then, use the Word accessibility guide to verify that you are keeping your syllabus accessible. If you get stuck, contact OET for additional guidance.
