Canvas Accessibility

Canvas as a platform is accessible to assistive technology users, but the content created within Canvas is not inherently accessible. Being web-based, Canvas content follows the same accessibility considerations as detailed on the Accessible Documents and Websites page. Canvas pages within a course should be checked for accessibility compliance with the built-in checker when creating content, or with UDOIT to evaluate the whole course.

Academic Integrity

Teaching our students to value academic integrity -- to respect others' work and give credit for others' ideas -- is an important part of our work in the classroom. This page contains tips and tools for reducing and detecting violations of our community academic integrity standards.

Digital Accessibility

Digital accessibility is a broad subset of an already broad area. The CDC surveyed Americans in 2018 and found that "One in 4 U.S. adults – 61 million Americans – have a disability that impacts major life activities." These disabilities can be permanent, temporary, or circumstantial, and fall into six main types: mobility, cognition, hearing, vision, independent living, and self-care.

Assistive Technology

Assistive technology (AT) is an umbrella term that refers to devices or software that provide aid to those with disabilities. In regards to digital accessibility, this includes screen readers, magnifiers, braille displays, speech recognition software, and alternative input devices, among others. This page collects some informational resources on AT and links to some useful tools.
