This course has broad appeal, and we wish to offer thru an online platform in order to enable more students to access the course, particularly for summer classes. Since this course has also been approved as a Caroline Core course, it will serve multiple purposes for the undergraduate curriculum.
Please include a statement a regarding accessibility of course material in the Provisions for Course Content Interactions section of the proposal.
Here are two examples you can modify and use:
Accessibility Statement Example 1The professor will meet with an instructional designer at the Center for Teaching Excellence (or department/college ID staff) to ensure that the course materials posted on Blackboard incorporate basic accessibility features. The course syllabus includes an accessibility statement that encourages students with disabilities to register with the Office of Student Disability services; should a student with a registered disability enroll in the course, the professor will work with the Office to make any additional accommodations appropriate to that student’s needs.
Accessibility Statement Example 2All documents including syllabus and description of assignments will be provided in both accessible Word and PDF formats. For instance, documents will have proper headings, alternative text, and properly labeled links where necessary. Likewise, PowerPoint slides will be made accessible by providing alternative text where necessary, ordering textboxes and other recommended ways of making PPTs accessible. Recorded lectures (if a part of the course) will be accompanied with transcripts in accessible Word and PDF formats.
Please call me at 777-0460 if you have any questions.

This proposal is being returned for minor repairs to the syllabus:
The requirements of all syllabi can be found in ACAF 2.03 (http://www.sc.edu/policies/ppm/acaf203.pdf).
If you have not seen it, INDEV has a set of standards that they use to review proposal to add distance delivery. The most recent one I know if can be found at https://www.sc.edu/faculty/PDF/INDEV_Checklist_Updated08-26-2016.pdf.
My understanding is that proposals to add distance deliver do not require Faculty Senate approval. When I approve a DED proposal the next steps are in the Registrar's Office, then INDEV. Once INDEV approves it, the course can be added to the schedule. While awaiting approval you can prepare and distribute information about the course.
Time is tight. My recommendation is to notify people each time the proposal moves to a new stage.
FYI - to upload properly formatted tables (or lists or headings, etc.) see the note about "Pasting from Microsoft Word":
When pasting from Microsoft Word, please use the 'Paste from Word' button to preserve similar formatting. After clicking this button, right click in the text area of the popup window and select Paste or select Ctrl-V on your keyboard.
This has worked well for me, but I can't promise it's perfect.
