Open Education

Open and accessible

BCcampus, together with Camosun College and CAPER-BC, has developed an Accessibility Toolkit for open education. It highlights resources that authors, instructional designers, educational technologists, librarians, administrators, and teaching assistants require to create truly open and accessible textbooks.

Langara is committed to Universal Design for Learning and encourages consideration of these principles when developing open educational resources (OER).

Accessibility Statements

Accessible textbooks should include an accessibility statement. While an accessibility statement is not required, it can be an important and useful addition to a resource for which you have worked to make accessible.

An accessibility statement acts as a resource for those who have questions about the accessibility features of your resource. It should provide an overview of accessibility features and contact information in case there are any problems (BCcampus).

Chapter 11 of BCcampus' Accessibility Toolkit focuses on accessibility statements.
