AS Faculty Portal Information - Online Services

Accessibility Services (AS) and Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services (DHoHS)


Starting May 1, 2018, AS will implement some changes to our procedures that will increase accessibility and benefit students and instructors: we will introduce a website that offers online access for several AS supports and services, including LETTERS OF INTRODUCTION, and TEST/EXAM BOOKINGS. Students registered with AS and their instructors can access the portal links from our department's website and use their WebAdvisor account’s username and password to log in. This is a secure platform that has been tested with TSC, reviewed by the Privacy office, and is currently used by a number of colleges and universities across North America.


Instructor web portal workflow overview: 1. Navigate  to web portal, 2. Log in using your WebAdvisor username & password, 3. Select Accommodation Letters or Courses, 4. Select term, 5. View, enter or change applicable details, 6. Repeat or log off

LETTERS OF ACCOMMODATION TO FACULTY/INSTRUCTOR

AS students (in Undergraduate, Graduate, and PACE programs) should now use the portal to request their confidential Accommodation Letter for their course instructor(s), who will be notified once this has been done. A notification e-mail will provide faculty with instructions on how to access the Letter(s) online and view the documented accommodations the student has requested for their course. The student and instructor will also have the option to download a copy of the Letter(s) for their own records. We will continue to encourage AS students to speak to their instructors directly to discuss specifically how these accommodations might apply to their course and program.

TEST/EXAM BOOKINGS

The above AS students will now be able to submit their test/exam booking requests online through the portal. The system will notify faculty to log in to their online portal, where they will be able to: view these bookings and a list of students in each course who have requested them, update our office on the test date/time/duration information and instructions, and (up to a day before the test) upload the test copy as a single document file. If there is more than one document file (e.g. tables, formula sheets, etc. in addition to the question sheet document), instructors may still send them to us at accessibility@uwinnipeg.ca
