Description

Accessible Course Documents

Making course content accessible for students with disabilities is an important shared responsibility. Applying principles of universal design answers can answer these needs while simultaneously allowing every participant to have a richer learning experience.

In this second session in a series on accessibility, we dive deeper into the some of the most frequently distributed types of course documents: Microsoft Word files, PDFs, and electronic course packets. We demonstrate the steps necessary to improve these materials so that they are searchable, navigable, and have improved compatibility with screen readers.

In addition to this session, additional workshops in the series cover how to make other types of content —such as PowerPoint and online video — more accessible for your students.


This workshop is a partnership between the Media and Design Studio, AccessibleNU, and Northwestern Information Technology.
