Web Accessibility Guidelines

This page has been created to provide helpful information to assist you with developing course content that is accessible for everyone.

We created the following guides to assist you with creating accessible course material. The guide How to Make Your Canvas Courses Accessible provides tips and resources on creating accessible content within Canvas. The guide Web Accessibility and Captioning Videos includes information to assist you with creating course material that is web accessible and also contains tips on how to add captions to videos that you create.  

TechSmith, the creators of Camtasia, wrote an article The New 508 Compliance Rule - What it Means for Video in Higher Ed that provides information on this new rule and tips on what you can do to ensure that every video you create is accessible. The article also includes reasons captions are important to all users and provides tips on how to create them.
