OL 3000.01 Supporting Accommodations for Online Learners, 2024

  • 01/01/2024 - 12/31/2024

At some point in your teaching, you’ll be notified that a student needs an accommodation. Often, this may confront you with a question or dilemma requiring action from you, perhaps well before you fully understand all of the issues, protocols, or possible solutions. To simulate such situations and prepare you to handle them, this course forgoes the standard online course framework and instead presents a scenario that situates you in an accommodation-related problem at the beginning of each module.

Course Objectives

After taking this course, you should be able to do the following:

  • Identify necessary steps when you receive a letter of accommodation.
  • Support students with flexibility accommodations.
  • Support students experiencing mental health issues or those who require mental-health-related accommodations.
  • Support students with hearing- or vision-related accommodations.
  • Support students who use text-to-speech tools.
  • Identify resources for building accessibility into a course.
