About Instructional Material Accessibility

The Accessible Technology Initiative represents a campus commitment to implementing our values of access in the online course materials used by faculty. The syllabus, readings, Bb Learn course activities, and other electronic documents need to be in an accessible format to make your course accessible. TLP can help you make these materials accessible with tutorials, training, and assistance with our lab resources.
