Justice Department Settles with Louisiana Tech University Over Inaccessible Course Materials

July 23, 2013
Source: DOJ

The settlement resolves allegations that the University violated the ADA by using a version of an online learning product that was inaccessible to a student who is blind. The studentís lack of access to the course materials persisted nearly one month into the University quarter, at which point the student was so far behind in his coursework that he felt compelled to withdraw from the course. The settlement also resolves allegations that in a subsequent course, the same student was not provided accessible course materials for in-class discussion or exam preparation in a timely manner.
