Abstract: As online courses have become a common format for delivery of instruction, students and faculty with disabilities are also increasing in attendance in online courses. As educators, we should provide access for our students, as well as support for those faculty who need additional resources to improve course access. This presentation provides an expedited process, as developed by the researchers, on the development of synchronous and asynchronous course strategies which can provide instructional support for those students who are deaf/hard of hearing. Strategies presented include quick transcript creation from audio/video recordings and leveraging course conferencing video features for interpreted (ASL/English interpretation) course sessions.
