Documents & Media


Quick Links

Documents (Word, PDF, etc.) and media (videos, podcasts, etc.) used as instructional materials and/or posted to the Web must be accessible to persons with disabilities in order to provide them with effective communication. Communication should be, to the extent possible, as effective for persons with disabilities as it is for persons without disabilities.

An essential component of effective communication is timeliness of delivery of accessible formats. To the extent possible, instructional materials, including online course materials, must be accessible to students with disabilities at the same time it is available to any other student enrolled in that program.
