Creating Accessible Content


Accessibility means that students will have equal access to your course materials.

"A person with a disability must be able to obtain the information as fully, equally, and independently as a person without a disability." 
-U.S. Departments of Education and Justice

Reasonable Accommodation

"...any modification or adjustment that will enable a qualified student with a disability to participate in a course, program, facility..."
-Penn State Office for Educational Equity

One of NSC Core Themes:

Excelling in Teaching and Learning: adapt to the needs of our rapidly changing world by changing ourselves, our curriculum, our services and our practices


Building Community means that we create a diverse, inclusive and safe environment accessible to all.

What we can do

As faculty, we can begin to create materials and offering choices to provide equal access for our students. eLearning is here to support this effort, to increase awareness and provide training in the creation of accessible course content.  Doing so is a matter of social justice and respecting the diversity and range of all our students’ abilities.

Our support

eLearning is here to support you with a  proactive approach;  taking small, easy steps in the creation of accessible documents.


  •  Accommodations assist a particular student's needs. Students work with Disabilitiy services to receive the required and legal accommodations.  Disabilty Services at North Seattle College is your resource for learning more about documented student accommodations. We encourage you to take a moment and meet the staff and learn how they can help you.
