LMS Accessibility Compliance for Faculty/Staff

Emphasis in higher ed on accessibility compliance for students has risen in recent years, but have faculty and staff also benefited from this increased awareness? Learning management systems (LMS) are often compliant for students, but not necessarily accessible to faculty and staff as they design curriculum, grade and interact with students. Are your institutions providing accessible digital tools for faculty/staff? What areas need to be addressed?

These questions are an essential part of a study being conducted at the University of Kentucky aimed at increasing awareness of an often ignored aspect of diversity. Please consider filling out this 5-10 minute survey and sharing it with your colleagues. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2G8J7Q6

 @juli_book , I see you've posted the identical discussion both here and in the Accessibility​ group. In order to avoid having parallel threads, I've locked this one for additional participation and have shared the other one to this group.

Did you know that you can share a post in more than one community space? Rather than creating two copies with differing comment threads, you can create your post and then use the Share link in the upper right to share it into additional spaces. Because you are a member of both the Higher Education and Accessibility groups, for example, you can post your discussion initially in the former group and then share it to the latter, as well as to any other groups to which you belong. Using the Share method allows us to consolidate resources, as it keeps all of the comments in a unified thread that is accessible to a larger audience.
