Creating Accessible Course Materials
If you are aware that a student is registered with the Moses Center for Student Accessibility, then feel free to contact the Moses Center for consultation with regard to your course materials.
It is best practice and supports NYU's goals to ensure that all digital content is accessible before an accommodation request is made.
Faculty can make their digital course content - e.g. - syllabi, slides, course readings, and websites - available to all by following best practices for content creation.

When creating your syllabus, we recommend you use the following accessible templates as a starting point:
- Accessible Syllabus Template [Microsoft Word version]
- Accessible Syllabus Template [Google Docs version]
- Example Syllabus [Microsoft Word version]
Note, make sure to include a disability accommodation statement on your syllabus to encourage your students to reach out to the Moses Center early in the semester.
