OL 3000.01: Supporting Accommodations for Online Learners

  • 01/01/2023 - 12/31/2023

In the real world, accommodation and accessibility issues often arise when we receive notification of a needed accommodation. In real life, you are often confronted with a question or dilemma, and some action is needed, perhaps well before you fully understand all of the issues, protocols, or possible solutions. So, this course foregoes the standard online course framework and first presents a scenario that situates you in a problem at the beginning of each module.
