4. Universal Design and Access Through Assistive Technology (continued)
The degree to which campuses deal with the issue of technology is uneven. Some assistive technologies can be integrated into existing or future campus-wide systems, while others have to be leased or purchased for individuals on a case-by-case basis - and even a course-by-course basis.
It is critical, therefore, that institutions of postsecondary education, to the greatest extent possible, ensure that campus technology is accessible by adhering to universal design standards; specific avenues exist for making it accessible to students with disabilities; and students have access to information on the latest in individual assistive technology to ensure they get the most out of their education.
