[Athen] Content remediation system?

We are a smaller community college and in my role as our Accessible IT Coordinator, manage a program we call AIM - Accessible Instructional Materials. For now I have funding from an internal 3 year grant but that expires in June 2020 and I'm unsure how things will proceed after that.

For now I use that funding to pay for 5 part-time hourly staffers who do content remediation for faculty. None of my current staff are students but they certainly could be. They have to be FERPA trained and they are never working in live classes. If they were active students, I would be intentional about which classes they could access and what content. My staff currently manage the captioning of videos, they remediate documents, Canvas pages, etc. I do outreach to our faculty who teach the most often offered, highest enrolled, greatest impact classes to try to get them remediated first but we also remediate courses for any faculty who requests it. This will change if our capacity is stretched as more faculty learn about our services. We regularly offer faculty training on how to create accessible content, locate captioned videos, select accessible publisher content, etc.

It's bit messy and a lot of work but it is having a positive impact.

Feel free to contact me off list if you have additional questions.

We offer training presentations in which faculty can engage, most are focused on document accessibility, web accessibility and captioning videos. They can also seek consulting from us or access our web resources. Our Seattle campus offers more comprehensive help with remediating their courses. We cation some high impact videos for free. Individual departments, colleges, and schools, e.g., the Business School, have instructional designers available to faculty as they develop a course and they include accessible videos, documents, etc. And then of course our disability services office remediates inaccessible elements of a course when a specific student has a related approved accommodation that requires this.

I'm the new Electronic IT Accessibility Coordinator for the university, housed within our IT department. I, too, am curious how other institutions structure this piece of their accessibility plan.

Hello colleagues-

Does your campus have a system in which faculty and staff can submit content to be remediated for accessibility? If so, can you give me an idea of how you've structured that system? How many people are on your remediation team, and are any of them students?

Thanks in advance!
