Accessible Syllabus Template


The UNCA Accessible Syllabus Template  provides a starting place for faculty members to create their own accessible syllabi.

When crafting accessible syllabi and course materials, faculty members should consider:

  • Creating meaningful image descriptions
  • Using descriptive hyperlinks
  • Considering how color choice and contrast may affect someone who is colorblind or has low vision.
  • Avoiding busy or distracting backgrounds

To learn how to create accessible content for a course document, consider viewing the Accessible Syllabus website.
