Announcement: Online Learning Accessibility Resources
As of March 23, 2020, UB will move all classes to remote (online) sessions and continue in this virtual environment for the remainder of the spring semester. Please view the university announcement for more information on UB's response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
In order to best serve our students, DAS staff have created a page for Online Learning Accessibility Resources. Our guides and recommendations for faculty and staff cover a variety of topics including accessible electronic materials, note-taking, captioning, multi-sensory learning, and adaptive technology. DAS staff will update the resource list regularly.
If you have requests for our resource list or questions about educational access, please contact the DAS staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disability and Access Services is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities and works to ensure access to all campus facilities and programs.
