Rutgers University is committed to providing an accessible and inclusive learning environment for everyone connected to the University. As events unfold due to COVID-19, the Rutgers community must still ensure the accessibility of web based information and courses as well as provide disability-related accommodations so that all students, faculty and staff can fully participate.
Students with disabilities may be impacted differently when switching from in-person to online instruction. Faculty should be prepared to provide and/or revise student accommodations as needed and to work with their campuses’ Office of Disability Services as questions arise related to academic accommodations. The following web resources have been prepared for faculty and students to ensure that courses continue to be accessible for students with disabilities:
- Accessibility and Accommodations During COVID-19
- Accessibility Resources for Remote Instruction
- Faculty Resources for Accessible Online Courses
- Tips for Faculty Providing Accommodations Online
Also, Rutgers Access and Disability Resources and The IT Accessibility Team are prepared to answer any questions or concerns related to creating accessible content during the COVID-19 situation. Please feel free to reach out at: Radr@echo.rutgers.edu or firstname.lastname@example.org.
