Reliance on such transportation may limit students opportunities to be involved in spontaneous events. Barriers to the physical campus and the surrounding community may also limit a students ability to interact with peers and faculty in a seamless and natural way. Students with physical disabilities often use assistive technology, which includes course materials provided in Braille or electronic format, screen readers and enlargers, and magnifiers that enlarge print information on a blackboard. Course websites and instructional tools like Blackboard can link students to the professor and class with minimal physical effort and allow materials to be prepared for document conversion well in advance. Technology that has not been designed with features of accessibility can become a significant barrier in the course.
