With COVID-19 stretching into 2021, the effects of the pandemic on the higher education landscape and how disability services staff can best serve their students has brought forth a larger conversation about accessibility. In last week's webinar, Symplicity client managers with a combination of 20+ years in higher ed student accommodations and accessibility discussed the widespread challenges institutions have been facing and spoke about the best practices and lessons learned from 2020.
In this webinar, some of the topics that were discussed were:
- Accommodation Management Best Practices
- Student Engagement
- Faculty & Staff Communication
We recently surveyed our Symplicity Accommodate clients and we found that these were the top three benefits from using the platform in 2020:
- 80% faster processing of student requests since implementation
- 75% increase in student engagement within the past 12 months
- 75% faster information sharing among staff
“The system has allowed us to continue operations without any disruption during a period of great uncertainty when both our office and our university were operating remotely. We could not have done this without Accommodate.”
