Online materials provided by course publishers should be accessible. Currently, publishers are not required to provide accessible materials under federal law. Many publishers are proactively making their materials accessible, while others are not. Publishers need to be contacted when materials are found to be inaccessible. We will need to work as a team to provide an accessible, equally effective learning experience option for inaccessible materials. Please ask publishers these questions before adopting their electronic and online tools and materials.
If any of these answers are "No", you might want to consider a different publisher. Discuss your other options with your campus or NOVA Online librarian, your instructional design team, campus disability counselors, Disability Support Services or other colleagues.
