Departmental Accessibility Resource Coordinators

DARC Resources

There are multiple ways on this website to find resources to review and share with your colleagues. Let's say your group chooses to work on the accessibility of your distance learning courses.

  • You can use the "Search" function. Type "distance learning" into the text field and you will be directed to a list of of the distance learning resources the ACCESS-ed Project has gathered.
  • You can go to the Virtual Accessible Campus, click on Classrooms & Learning, click on Teaching Methods, then click on Distance Learning.  You might find more potential resources in this manner because you will find related topics that do not include "Distance Learning" in their entries.
  • You can go to the Tools & Resources page.  You can scan the annotations in the Video list to see if there is a video resource that addresses your distance learning concerns. A DARC suggestion - You can choose to use that video in your next time slot on the department meeting agenda.
Explore the web site, get to know the concerns of your colleagues, and you will find a match of resource to the need.  If you don't find what you are looking for, please let us know through the feedback form. Please let us know if you find a great resource to share.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
