creating accessible courses

June 15, 2016 Creating Accessible Courses

As you’re developing your course syllabi, please think about designing accessible courses for all students. For example:

  • Using captioned videos, films and other audio presentations
  • Offer flexibility regarding attendance
  • Provide texts in alternative formats
  • Give verbal descriptions of visual aids and graphics
  • Paraphrase questions and answers
  • Allow students to turn in parts of large projects for feedback before the final project is due
  • Highlight key points throughout discussions

For more information on creating accessible courses, please refer to the UF Accessibility website.
