Accessibility Office Hours Webinar Series:
April 2: Canvas Accessibility and Transitioning to Online Classes


With the rapid transition of face-to-face classes into the online environment, many faculty have questions about how to address accessibility requirements for instructional materials. When using Canvas to support online teaching, following best practices can help deliver an accessible and usable online class for all students.


In this session, we will discuss the steps to take when creating instructional materials in Canvas as well as how to support students with disabilities during this transition from face-to-face to online instruction. We will review quick steps to create accessible pages in Canvas by organizing content, adding properly formatted heading styles, tables, alt text for images, lists, and accurately captioned videos. All faculty are welcome to join and ask questions about Canvas and accessibility.


The Accessibility Office Hours offer the opportunity to ask questions and share best practices regarding institutional web and IT accessibility issues. Audience participation is welcome!
