Disability Services and Online Learning (formerly Distance Learning) will help you convert inaccessible materials or find equally effective alternatives.  This chart outlines who’s responsible for accessibility of an online course.

In 2011, PCC developed the Accessibility Guidelines for Online Course Content. These guidelines are based on WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) AA standards. This website provides resources to help faculty and staff meet these requirements.
