GCU Policies1. GCU does not assist instructor or student with multimedia technical difficulties. The instructor must be prepared to provide his/her own technical support to students.2. Instructors must abide by all current copyright laws pertaining to all multimedia content. As such, instructors should only utilize multimedia that they have created.3. Multimedia must be made available to university personnel for at least eight weeks after the course end date to facilitate issues with grade appeals or other student concerns.4. Multimedia content should be appropriate for an academic setting and specifically the class for which it is intended. GCU maintains the right to determine the appropriateness of multimedia supplements; any material found offensive or inappropriate by GCU standards will be removed.5. Instructor-generated multimedia should enhance, not replace, pre-loaded classroom materials. Pre-loaded materials and expectations must be utilized and cannot be altered or modified as a function of supplemental materials.6. If multimedia presents additional material or expectations, the instructor must also provide a written transcript to abide by ADA guidelines. Multimedia supplements providing clarification of an assignment or expectation do not require a transcript.
ADA Compliance• It is important to ensure that any added content also encompasses GCU’s goal to maintain accessibility for all students. The University encourages you to use technology (such as YouTube) that has specific features to make videos that are accessible for students with disabilities, including the option to use closed captioning. You can also help ensure equal access to added materials by using more than one source for links to information. For example, if you upload an interactive website, please be sure to find a website with similar content that has the information available in a text format. Please note that students are not required to disclose their disability, and because GCU’s online classrooms are so accessible, they may not have self-identified.• If you have received a notification from the University’s Disability Services, please be sure you comply with their requests. If a student discloses a disability to you, and you have not already been notified by the Disability Office, please be sure to refer them to the office for assistance. If you are unsure about how to facilitate accommodations, or have questions about providing accommodations, please feel free to contact the Disability Office at the following: Contact for Faculty: To Refer a Student: 602-639-7534 or 602-639-7239 602-639-6342 firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
In a nutshell…1. You are your own technical support.2. Follow copyright rules.3. Leave all supplements in your course.4. Be professional.5. Don’t change course content or expectations.6. Follow ADA rules.-------------------------------------If you add new instructionalcontent, you must provide atext alternative.
