ACCESS-ed Products

The ACCESS-ed Project staff are engaged in the collection and development of a wide variety of materials to support the use of UD principles in higher education. Given the wealth of information that has been developed in recent years, a considerable amount of time is devoted to searching and indexing existing materials. In cases where we have identified gaps in the knowledge base, we have enaged in the development of measurement tools, training materials, and other practical resources.

Information about the following types of products can be found in the Tools & Resources and the Virtual Campus sections of the web site:

  • AUDITs (instruments for measuring the accessiblity and usability of a specific campus environment or function)
  • Posterettes and Tip Sheets (easy to use practical advice on selected topics)
  • Protocols and Strategies (how-to procedures)
  • Video Clips (short videos that illustrate good and bad examples of accessibility (or attempts at accessibility), called "Accessibility Gems and Bloopers", and links to videos created by others, including information about disabilities and assistive technology)
  • Surveys (surveys for measuring stakeholder knowledge and perspectives on UDE and accessibility)

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
