Faculty Accessibility Resources
As courses are moved to an online environment, we have developed faculty resources for accessible online learning to provide the most critical accessibility and accommodation considerations when moving courses, content and assessments from in-person to online formats in a constrained time frame. The University has also created overall faculty resources as they move to the online environment.
Additional accessibility considerations may be required based on the specific accommodation needs of a student in their course(s). We have developed a faculty training module for providing information about working with students with disabilities. Also, we have many resources for faculty including:
- How to Add Extended Time to Tests
- How to Create Accessible PowerPoints, Word Documents, and PDF's
- Confidentiality of Student Information
- How to set up student accommodations when using Respondus LockDown Browser or Monitoring.
- Using Zoom and Zoom Accessibility
- Using Web Ex and Web Ex Accessibility
- Tips for Working with People with Disabilities
- 10 Commandments of Communication and Disabilities
- Top 3 Ways to Improve Document Accessibility
Faculty are encouraged to reach out to the student's Coordinator that signed the Letter of Accommodation or simply contact the Office of Disability Services at your Rutgers campus if you have questions or concerns related to a student's accommodation needs in a course.
Additionally, Rutgers Access and Disability Resources and the IT Accessibility Team are prepared to answer any questions or concerns related to creating accessible content during the COVID-19 situation. Please feel free to reach out at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
