Accessibility in Canvas
At Mt. SAC, the best way to get fast information about making content in Canvas accessible is to enroll in the Mt. SAC Faculty Accessibility Center. Any employee at Mt. SAC with credentials in our Canvas account can enroll in this course, which will give you ongoing access on your Canvas dashboard. You always have the option to hide the card or unenroll if you wish to do so.
