For all Blackboard shells, as well as online courses, reasonable accommodations must be made to web content (not only face-to-face instruction) to maximize student accessibility in your course and comply with federal ADA requirements.
Instructors bear the responsibility of ensuring subsequent changes to approved courses continue to meet these and other DEC and ADA standards. Contact IT and/or Disability Services for assistance.
Below are items you must check to ensure all Text in your course is accessible.
Color is sometimes used to convey meaning beyond the basic text. In a course syllabus, for example, you may use color to emphasize an important statement. Or, on a PowerPoint slide showing a multiple choice question, you might show the correct answer in green and color the incorrect answers in red. Using color to communicate meaning or emphasis is problematic for students with color blindness. If you want to use color to express meaning, you should also provide a supplemental means to convey the information without color. In a good example, survey results reported by gender would display data from males in a red font followed with an asterisk (*). Colorblind students could identify male data by the asterisks (*) rather than the colored font.
