Accessibility: Tools for Faculty
Cal Poly Pomona is committed to creating a culture of access for an inclusive learning environment. This means ensuring that all campus electronic and information technology resources are fully accessible to persons with disabilities. The goal is to provide the most effective learning environment for all students while at the same time complying with existing policies and laws.
The CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) reflects the CSU's ongoing commitment to provide access to information resources and technologies to individuals with disabilities.
The following resources are available to faculty in providing an accessible learning environment:
The eLearning team supports faculty in instructional design, multi-media development, hands-on workshops, and one-on-one consulting with Studio 6 Instructional Designers.
As a service of eLearning, Studio 6 provides assistance to faculty in support of eLearning technologies. Studio 6 was established to provide resources and services to assist faculty as they redesign existing courses or develop new courses for online, hybrid, and web-assisted modes of instruction.
Any video the university produces, hosts, or plays publicly in a class must be captioned. MediaVision is the faculty resource for captioning videos.
The Accessible Technology Resources for Teaching and Learning through the Chancellor's Office offers many great resources including course accessibility checklists, universal design information, and web accessibility guidelines.
