Session Abstract

The reliance of higher education institutions on online and hybrid learning continues to grow, drawing increased attention to concerns about the accessibility of online learning systems and resources for persons with disabilities. This panel will discuss the context for IT accessibility in relation to cloud services, including best practices, policies, and ways to evaluate the accessibility of cloud services. It will also review contracting approaches that colleges and universities should consider to help ensure service providers can appropriately support the institution in meeting accessibility requirements.
