  • Think inclusively in your online course design and instructional strategies, including using a variety of materials and providing accessible ways for students to interact. 

  • Set up protocols and share tips with your instructors that help facilitate clear communication and sharing.

  • Caption all of your videos and media, and do not rely on auto captions, such as those on YouTube. 

  • Periodically check in with the student and everyone else involved: including faculty, access providers, staff and administrators.
