Accessibility IconThe Office of E-Learning works with the Learning Access Program (LAP) to create a welcoming environment for students who need accommodations. Any student requiring an accommodation should start with the Learning Access program. A wide variety of resources are available through LAP.

Together the student and LAP will develop a set of reasonable accommodations that address the student’s learning and physical access needs. After the plan is developed, the student is responsible for notifying his/her instructors in a timely manner.

The Office of E-Learning works with faculty and staff content providers to assist them in evaluating, creating, and converting digital artifacts for accessibility.

From a teaching and learning perspective, disabilities can be divided into four major categories: vision, hearing, physical mobility, and cognition. Many students with accessibility challenges have already been working with tools that support their learning. However, adjustments may be needed to materials that faculty members include in their courses or offices include on their web pages.

The links below can serve as a starting point for your work in making your content more accessible for students. Please don’t hesitate to contact the Learning Access Program (J-204, 609-652-4988) and the Office of E-Learning (K-206, 609-626-3479) for assistance.
