Accessibility related to Instructional Technologies

Making sure that all of your students can access your course materials is key to supporting student success. There are a number of helpful options that are already built into commonly used tools that you use (e.g., Quercus (Canvas), Word, Adobe Acrobat, etc.)

Quercus (Canvas) has Online Assignment and Quiz Accommodations that allow instructors to change assignment and test settings for individual students, depending on the requirements outlined for an accessibility accommodation that have been requested through the University of Toronto Mississauga AccessAbility Resource Centre.
