CASNR Accessibility Compliance Team
The services offered by the team will include proofing and correcting the caption files for lecture videos, ensuring that the syllabus, course schedule, and lecture PowerPoints are accessible. We can assist with descriptive hyperlinks, check for appropriate color contrast, and identify images missing Alt Tags in course materials, and are also available to demonstrate to faculty how they can use accessibility best practices when developing new course materials.

CASNR Online Student Orientation
Part of being successful in an online course is learning how to operate and interact in the environment. This series of modules will equip your students with the tools to be successful in their online courses. In addition to learning some strong skills to help them be a successful online student, they will also learn basic Blackboard skills to access course materials, communicate with classmates and the instructor, submit assignments, take tests, and check their grades and instructor feedback. Contact Karissa Greathouse for more information or to request adding your students to the orientation Blackboard course.
