Instructional Technology Services is committed to ensuring all learners can be successful in their academic courses by supporting the use of accessible information and technology. We do this by advocating the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in course materials and activities.
Accessibility make take many forms. We may be unaware of its use in the world around us. Have you read captioning for a video when you forgot your headphones and wish to avoid distracting those around you? Have you listened to an audible book while driving in your vehicle? Making something accessible helps everyone, including those with disabilities.
The Disability Resource Center works with students and faculty to provide academic accommodations for those needing assistive services.The Regional Assistive Technology Center provides communication devices and key knowledge about the services available for assistive technology.Together with the MSUM community, we can each do our part to eliminate barriers to the use of information and technology on campus and help our learners be successful.
