Providing Extended Time Accommodations for Tests and Assignments in Canvas

MS State Online Guide to Canvas

Common issues with accessibility in online courses include:

  • Lack of alternative text—this should be placed with all images and tables in an online course. It should describe the importance of the image to the content being learned.
  • Lack of closed captioning – all video and audio content requires closed captioning. Canvas Studio allows instructors to caption audio and video files.
  • Readability – Content and text should read left to right, and then top to bottom, like reading a book
