In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act and Americans with Disabilities Act, and in support of OER adoption impact data collection, the college will be piloting a new form within PeopleSoft to collect teaching and learning materials across the institution in the Spring of 2019 for Summer Session 2019, with the hopes of full implementation Fall 2019.

Using PeopleSoft, MIS has created a form faculty can use once a semester to report their course materials. This data will be shared to the bookstore for purchases, improve the accessibility work done by the Disability Services Center and create an enrollment report for open textbook use. Students will see the listed course materials during registration. Rather than report to each entity, faculty will be able to report once.
Each semester Disability Services Center convert and adapt teaching materials for students with disabilities to meet individual accessibility needs. Some processes, including converting to specific types of braille, need to be done well in advance of the start of the semester. Because Disability Services has a list of students registered with them in PeopleSoft, this form will allow them to run the list against the teaching materials list, independently of faculty reporting to their office, to begin making materials accessible so that they are ready when they are needed in class.
