    Whether you teach in a classroom and augment your teaching with materials in Canvas or through other online resources or whether you teach completely online, you need to consider ensuring that your material design follows guidelines to ensure that the largest number of people can access your materials without major problems. Universal Design is part of the university’s strategic plan, and designing accessibility in mind is the law. Join us for some tips and tricks on how to make your course materials ADA compliant (ADA=Americans with Disabilities Act) and how to evaluate online resources for ADA compliance, delivered by Accessibility Expert Dr. Scott Renner from the Office of Accessibility.
