Listers -

I received this email from a co-worker, and I figured you can answer it
better than me. Any thoughts?


I'm doing research for a whitepaper on simulatioins and
games in eLearning...and came across an article by Kieran Pitts
and Andrew Ashwin titled "Online games and simulations as aids
to learning ethos, challenges and evaluation." Here, they talk
about how educators have a harder time making simulatiions and
games accessible....and cite SENDA (2001) and the DDA
(1995)....which may well be something in the UK... (The
University of Bristol published "interact" in Oct. 05, Issue 31,
pp. 12 - 13). Anyway, I wonder if you had any information on
the accessibility piece as that seems like something we may have
to consider if we head towards this at some point. This may be
years down the line...

Any help would be appreciated.
