Important Accessibility Information

Instructors are encouraged to reference for best practices and resources for making course content accessible. In particular, you should refer to

and to ensure that your content will be accessible to all students who may be in your course (now and into the future). Keep in mind that it is harder and more expensive to make content accessible after-the-fact. Also, know that you are required to ensure your content is accessible if it will be made available to the public or if you have been notified by DSP that student accommodation is required.
