Document Conversion

There are several things that you, as an instructor, can do to assure all your students have access to course materials in a format that is accessible with assistive technologies and mobile devices.

  • Select and order your books early
    • You may be contacted by DRC if your order has not been received by the Bookstore by its priority date
    • Ensure an electronic version of the text is accessible for assistive technologies and possibly mobile devices
  • Prepare your course syllabus early.  Be sure to include dates and pages for required readings
  • Assist in locating print materials for conversion
    • Your student or DRC may contact you for a copy of your book, syllabus or online materials in order to scan them and create accessible electronic files
  • Post accessible information on D2L, Blackboard, or course website
    • DRC Staff may be added to your D2L course site in order to convert inaccessible course content into accessible electronic files.
