Reference information for tackling reasonable accommodation in online lectures

In response to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, I understand that each university is working to implement online lectures.
Based on the Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities enacted in 2016, educational institutions are required to make efforts with an eye on reasonable accommodation, but we have received comments from staff members of member universities who are in charge of some practical operations that "the current situation alone is severe."
We have compiled a list of sites on the Foundation's website that disseminate useful information about the case, so we hope you will make use of them.
We hope that this information will help you promote reasonable accommodation.
