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)

"July 26 marks the 19th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.... the ADA's provisions include the right to seek, obtain, pursue and maintain employment without being hampered by physical or attitudinal barriers. I believe that having a job is a civil right. Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
