The second Subject Area Accessibility Study starts today!

Posted by | Start the discussion

The second Subject Area Accessibility Study starts today! We have 3 faculty investigating the best ways to make graphical interfaces and visual information in online courses accessible.

  • Susan Watson from Computer Applications
  • Gayathri Iyer from Computer Science
  • Marc Goodman from Computer Information Systems

The study is supported by Instructional Support/Distance Learning, Disability Services and the Deans of Instruction. Many thanks to them and our faculty.

We will post study updates on the study on this blog. I think it will be a very exciting study that not only benefits PCC, but other institutions and instructors struggling to provide accessible online content.

Stay tuned!

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
