Making electronic offerings more accessible to the campus community and the public at large was the topic of a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Lance Alexis, director of Americans with Disabilities Act compliance at MTSU, first aired March 13 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and online at www.wmot.org. You can listen to their conversation above.
MTSU’s Information Accessibility Plan is a step-by-step blueprint for making sure that information, materials and technologies are more accessible by 2020.
“Within the last 10 years or so, people have begun really looking at digital access,” Alexis said. “Ultimately, the ADA says that anything that you offer needs to be as accessible as possible.”
Alexis, who was director of the university’s Disability and Access Center from September 2013 to March 2017, said the plan’s campuswide approach includes emails, videos used by professors in classes, video boards in athletic facilities, university websites and various other aspects of campus life.
