Division of Digital Learning
Approximately four percent of UCF’s students are connected with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). Although four percent may sound like a small number, approximately 75% of faculty have at least one student in at least one course connected with SAS. Therefore, it’s important that when you are creating digital materials for your online course, that you ensure all students, including those with disabilities, can access and use your online content, activities, and assessments.
To learn more about UCF’s commitment to providing accessible course materials to all students and the support services available to assist you with this, please read UCF’s Digital Accessibility Policy (PDF) and the 2021 Provost Letter to Faculty. Below is a list of resources for faculty provided by the Center for Distributed Learning to help create accessible digital course materials, review existing course materials to identify any possible accessibility barriers, and improve the accessibility of these materials.
The links below provide best practices and directions to create accessible online course materials.
