Directing learners to accessibility resources

It is a good practice to provide learners with information about how to find accessible information and additional support:

  • In Brightspace account settings, there are a number of settings that can be adjusted to improve accessibility. These user preferences are controlled by individual users, and can be set to the greatest benefit of individual learners.
  • The Brightspace tool provides learners with help about accessibility features, including tips on how to configure Brightspace for use with a screen reader, screen magnifier, or keyboard-only assistive technology device. You can find information about using zoom, color contrast, and navigating using keyboard-only.
  • Your organization likely has a Disability Services office, library support staff, and tutoring staff available for students seeking additional help. As an instructor, familiarize yourself with the programs in your organization and share the information with students who seek additional support.
