Mount Holyoke uses Moodle themes with known accessible features. Follow the best practices below to ensure that your Moodle site is accessible.
Create a hierarchical structure to your Moodle site so that students have an easier time finding related content.
Consider displaying courses as one week, topic, or unit at a time.
Or group similar materials together into sub-categories (ie. videos, homework readings, quizzes, etc.)
Collect files on similar topics into related folders.
Double check that the names of linked documents match what is listed in your syllabus.
Do not override the forced download document setting.
Consider carefully when using the Chat feature. There are no new message notifications in the accessible Chat platforms, which negatively affect the usability of the platform. If you have a student using a screen reader, we recommend using Google Chat instead.
