Training sessions are offered on a first come, first served basis, and you must register to attend. For workshops and open labs, registration is optional. Our offerings are only available to members of the UNLV community.

UNLV is obligated to make content accessible and usable by persons with disabilities. This in-depth training is designed to help you develop, create, and maintain accessible materials. The training gives you the necessary knowledge and tools to make accessibility happen.

Time Commitment

This course runs five and a half hours, and it can be taken in a single day or in segmented format.

  • Create accessibility materials (including webpages, Word, and PDF documents)
  • Evaluate materials and technologies for accessibility
  • Use design support and resources

Who Should Attend

All content creators, face-to-face and online instructors, faculty, staff, administrators, and other interested parties are highly encouraged to register and attend.

Note: If your UNLV unit wants to schedule a customized FOA, submit an email request to Accessibility Resources Team Support.

This intermediate WebCampus course module is available once you have completed the FOA. It is designed for instructors using Canvas to share digital materials with students, whether in fully online courses or in-person courses supplemented on the web. The module aims to increase your ability to identify accessibility concerns in online course materials and use available Canvas options to address those concerns.

We offer abbreviated training for faculty, part-time instructors, and graduate teaching assistants. Microsoft Word is used to demonstrate the required structures to support digital accessibility in a syllabus. The content covered in this training session provides baseline accessibility information for other nominal documents.

Visit the Accessible Syllabus page for more information. To request custom training for graduate assistants, email accessibilityresourceteam-request@unlv.edu.
