Status of ITS resources
Accommodations should not compromise the academic quality of the course.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are federal laws that require K-State to provide, to all qualified individuals, access to K-State programs and services including course content. Accessible course content guided by universal design principles benefits all students and reduces the need to retrofit a course when a student with accommodations enrolls.
The best time to introduce those principles is during the creation, revamp, or update of your course content. Universal design refers to the creation of environments that are inherently accessible to a wide range of people including people with disabilities. When applying universal design principles faculty and instructors should consider: different browsers; screen resolutions; disabled extensions/services; different devices; different formats; disability access; and navigation.
