When designing and developing an online course, instructors need to consider the following accessibility standards:
  • The course acknowledges the importance of ADA requirements
  • Web pages provide equivalent alternatives to auditory and visual content
  • Web pages have links that are self-describing and meaningful
  • The course demonstrates sensitivity to readability issues

Make sure to include a disability statement in your course syllabus, such as follows:
  • If you are a student with a disability and need accommodations for this class please contact the Disability Resource and Access office located at the White Mountain Campus. The coordinator, Sandy Manor, travels to all campuses and centers and an appointment can be scheduled to meet with her by calling: 532-6178 (Local in Show Low) or 1-800-266-7845 ext. 6178. Applications can be submitted electronically at or by following this link.

Make sure to include a public notice of non-discrimination in your course syllabus, such as follows:
  • Northland Pioneer College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, marital status, gender, age or disability in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in its educational programs or activities. District grievance procedures will be followed for compliance with Title IX and Section 504 requirements. The Affirmative Action Compliance Officer is the Director of Human Resources, 2251 E.
