The process of ensuring that course materials, documents and communications meet accessibility guidelines has a reputation for being time consuming and difficult. In this workshop, we will discuss small steps you can take that will have a significant impact on the learner’s experience. We will also introduce SensusAccess, a new self-service tool at Colgate designed to enhance document accessibility.

This will take place as a Zoom meeting. Participants will receive the link to join the meeting via their confirmation email.
