Access and Accessibility 

Please consult with the  DSS staff for additional support if you have a student who has been identified as having a disability, as in some cases, remote proctoring software may be incompatible with the accommodation.  CSUF has additional documentation for supporting both faculty and students if you choose to use a proctored exam. 


Check course content on mobile to ensure mobile users can see learning modules, discussion forums, and access assignments.

Consider implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL ) practices to improve the learning experience for all students.

  • Identify your new expectations for students: You will have to reconsider some of your expectations for students, including participation, communication, and deadlines. As you think through those changes, keep in mind the impact this situation may have on students’ ability to meet those expectations, including illness, lacking power or internet connections, or needing to care for family members. Be ready to handle requests for extensions or accommodations equitably.


  • Create a more detailed communications plan: Once you have more details about changes in the class, communicate them to students, along with more information about how they can contact you (email, remote office hours, etc.). A useful communication plan also lets students know how soon they can expect a reply. They will have many questions, so try to figure out how you want to manage that.
