Canvas/iLearn and Document Accessibility

iLearn is SF State's Learning Management System based on Moodle. Although the iLearn web interface is accessible and is routinely tested for accessibility, it is the responsibility of each instructor to ensure that any instructional content uploaded into iLearn is also accessible.

Canvas is SF State's new Learning Management System and the University is currently transitioning to Canvas from iLearn. To learn more about the transition, please visit the Canvas FAQ page. The Canvas course shells are accessible but it is important to ensure that the instructional content uploaded into Canvas is also accessible.

SF State provides an automated tool called the Accessible Media Quick Converter that can assist you in automatically making your existing documents accessible. This includes several document types - PDFs, Word Documents, PowerPoint and other formats. 

Note that content created in iLearn using the text editor should also be formatted so as to maximize accessibility. For more assistance on ensuring your instructional materials are accessible, please review the resources below.
