Aim for Accessibility

aim for Accessibility LogoCreating accessible documents and learning materials doesn’t require high tech skills or specialized programs. In fact, many of the techniques we recommend make it easier to style and design course materials.

By following these simple suggestions, we can make our course materials easier to use and understand for all students.

Accessible document considerations can be broken down into eight segments:

Like our dartboard, the goal is to bring these segments together for full accessibility. But, like darts, we start by getting on the board – and every point helps. There are many different approaches to accessibility – we can work on one segment or one document at at time – each effort bringing us closer to the bullseye. And remember, no one has to do it alone…

 

We are here to help!

The Center for Academic Innovation has resources, workshops and staff to help and support Chemeketa’s accessible design efforts.

Tech Hub Website

The old Tech Hub website also has a lot of resources to help you as Faculty of Chemeketa.  Over the course of the next year, we’ll be moving over resources from the Tech Hub website to this website.  In the mean time, you might want to take a look at what’s still available over there.
