Online Accessibility Evaluation

Texas Tech's Worldwide eLearning department has an Online Accessibility Lab (OAL) which can conduct an evaluation for you to determine the accessibility of the following:

  • Your online course in Blackboard
  • Your online content in another website
  • A website that you would like to use in your course
  • Content from a publisher

Captioning Lab

When teaching online, all course content must be accessible to those students with disabilities. The purpose of Worldwide eLearning's Captioning Lab is to assist faculty members and instructors in making their electronic course materials comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
