Re: instructor questionalternative accommodation

hello: a student has no obligation to let the instructor know they have a
disability but if they don't tell the instructor how to accommodate them
they have no accommodations. students should be given a choice to turn the
feature on or off them selves.. but you need to make sure the student is
not losing any content or ideas from the accommodation. make sure the
other games and so on teach the same thing. and then once you have done
that why not just give every one the accessible games and get rid of the
others. Lucy
