Make Your Courses Accessible to All Students!

You can make sure that students can learn from you, regardless of their ability. The SBCTC Accessibility 101 Online Course is a great resource for learning to create accessible course materials:

Tune Up Your Course With PLAID!

The Peer-Led Analysis of Instructional Design (PLAID) is a tool to help you analyze and make changes to your online, hybrid, or web-enhanced course. Learn more!


Check out the schedule! CanvAssistance meets in Building 9, Room 110 (MIDS), or Building 19, Room 109, as noted on the calendar.

CanvAssistance is also available online! Check the calendar for times, then connect to the Zoom link you'll see in email!


Using video? Is it captioned?

Captioning helps students learn better, especially those learning English and those studying in loud places (like work). In addition, federal law requires that videos used in an instructional setting be captioned. That includes YouTube videos, Camtasia, Vimeo, TED talks, Panopto... anything that a student who can't hear would need for class.

Lower Textbook Costs for Students/Open Educational Resources FLC

The Open Educational Resources (OER) Faculty Learning Community will be meeting throughout the year to learn how to remove the cost of textbooks as a barrier to student success. Learn more about what they've found on their web site.

What does Instructional Design do?

Instructional Design at Highline is charged with four goals:

  • Assist faculty with curriculum design and instructional materials development
  • Produce video and other multimedia in support of the instructional process>
  • Build a community of practice around the use of technology in teaching
  • Support faculty development of online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced courses

We do this through a combination of project partnerships with faculty or departments (for example, redesigning a program to modular, open-entry courses), workshops, seminars and discussion groups, and one-on-one, just-in-time consulting.

Department staff are involved in IT leadership, technology training, distance learning, faculty development, teaching in several different departments, and multimedia production.

We work closely with the Learning and Teaching Center, the Library and Information Technology Services.
