Important Reminder for All Instructors Regarding Remote Teaching Platforms

Please use only UCR-recommended platforms for delivering remote instruction and administering online exams. These recommended platforms may impose some constraints on instructors but using them provides appropriate accessibility, privacy and security for both instructors and students. Use of iLearn (Blackboard) is strongly encouraged and will satisfy most instructors’ needs. Use of YouTube is discouraged. Faculty who already utilize YouTube should contact the Exploration Center for Innovative Teaching and Engagement (XCITE) for further instructions on how to make YouTube ADA compliant. Other UCR-recommended platforms and best practices can be found on the KeepTeaching website.

Consider contacting XCITE or the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) to ask about the platforms you are using and their accessibility.
