New Canvas Accessibility Service

Nov 18, 2022

Sign up to have your course materials made more accessible.

Academic Technology Support Services (ATSS) has launched a Canvas Course Accessibility Service utilizing UDoIT. It was modeled after a pilot project from UMD's Academic Technology Course Design Team.

As explained on the Make My Course Accessible form:

The University of Minnesota is committed to making course materials accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. ATSS will scan the courses you submit in this form using UDOIT and will work with you to correct any accessibility errors and suggestions in your Canvas course, and help it comply with the UMN accessibility policy.

You can submit individual courses, or a list of courses for an entire department or unit.

How the process works:

 
  1. After you submit, ATSS will review the content and contact you to present you with a plan of action.
  2. During a period when you are not editing your course, we will copy the content in a dev course, scan and correct all agreed on errors.
  3. Return the course to you with correction that you can copy in the following semester course shell.

Your commitment:

We are happy to work with you, as long as you agree that if you use the version with the corrections that you help us keep it accessible to the extent where we handed it off to you or better.
