Canvas, UDL & Training


Accessible Content Checklist

Creating accessible documents and course resources is a necessary step toward a classroom environment that supports the learning of all students. Use this checklist to review several basic steps for creating more accessible documents.

Canvas Tip

To make your Canvas course(s) more navigable for students, make sure that you disable Canvas course links that are not being used within your course(s).

To do so, head to your course(s) “Settings” and select “Navigation.” From there, you can disable various course features that will not be used within your course(s).

Keep in mind that any and all links can be enabled and disabled at any time.
