The World Campus Accessibility Office specializes in accessibility issues in online courses. Our goals include facilitating compliance with Penn State policy and U.S. legal accessibility standards, providing leadership in identifying and implementing best practices in accessibility, coordinating academic accommodations, working with external vendors to provide accessible versions of media, preparing faculty and student training materials, conducting and disseminating informal research and experience in accessibility of online courses, and identifying and addressing access challenges specific to special audiences such as the military.
We are creating staff training and faculty development resources that may assist you in preparing accessible online courses. We are also available to provide presentations and consultation on the topic of accessibility, as well as individual accessibility reviews of online courses.
