Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR), per legislation submitted to the State of Tennessee by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC), is committed to providing online resources that meet high standards for web accessibility (see: Accessibility Initiative). Volunteer State Community College must comply with these state and federal accessibility standards. In conjunction with TBR accessibility initiatives and documentation requirements, Vol State is working with vendors to collect documentation related to vendors’ efforts towards achieving the TBR-desired WCAG 2.0 A & AA standards for web-content or EPUB3.
Vol State now requires the following forms. Vol State cannot purchase or renew access to your product or textbook until these documents are satisfactorily completed and returned. Please complete as many forms as necessary to cover items like: the textbook, all instructor provided resources (PowerPoint slides, videos, etc.), as well as any online portals that students may have access to. Please complete and return the following forms to firstname.lastname@example.org and to my attention, <your name>, at <your email> within the next thirty (30) days.
