Course Accessibility Badge and Course Accessibility Review
In the past, the MSU IT Digital Content team used a faculty and video work plan for documenting accessibility. We are now shifting towards using a different approach in order to better process, manage, and compile the data from the course accessibility project. As a part of this shift, we are also adding a course accessibility badge that can be awarded by the Digital Content team.
The goal of the Course Accessibility Badge/Course Accessibility Review (CAB/CAR) strategy is to provide a helpful process for remediating content, courses, and curriculum in a way that aligns with MSU’s digital accessibility annual self-reviews, and five-year plans.
Faculty/instructors and students can benefit from this process in:
- High enrollment courses.
- General Education (“Gen Ed”) courses or introductory courses.
- Courses which are prerequisites for entering a program or major.
- Courses which are required for a program or major.
- Elective courses.
- Courses or content which are only presented once.
