YuJa Panorama Has Proved to be an Invaluable Accessibility Tool at River Parishes Community College
When James McCrary joined RPCC as the Director of Innovative Teaching and Learning in 2020, he started in his new role by working to understand the institution’s goals, which included building capacity for online programs and creating innovative ways to help students learn.
One thing that stood out, McCrary said, was that instructors wanted to provide accessibility for students beyond the built-in tools available in the learning management system. “We have a tight-knit community within the Louisiana Community and Technical College System, and through a contact at Delgado Community College, we learned about YuJa Panorama,” McCrary said. “What really struck me was how we could easily reach the goals we wanted to for our students.”
Because of the timing of McCrary’s joining the institution – during the height of the pandemic – it was important to provide a tool that provided a holistic approach to accessibility that was simple to implement and use by faculty.
