Picture Yourself in Students’ Shoes
May 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
For students with disabilities, online resources remove many of the physical and social barriers to education, such as navigating facilities that aren’t physically accessible, or coping with social anxiety or OCD.
Just think about the tasks that an average student can do online:
- Register for classes
- Pay tuition
- View class materials distributed electronically
- Get feedback on assignments electronically
- Browse the course catalog
- Watch videos for class, including lectures
- Reserve a common room for an event
- Request and renew library books
- Request transcripts
This is only a small portion of the tasks that a student may need to do over the course of their educational career. Each of these tasks takes longer and is more tedious for a student with a disability. If simple digital accessibility features are not integrated into your web systems, you’ll have students who will grow frustrated and be unable to take full advantage of their education.
