I can provide some informal information. Please let me know if there is a
specific community you campus is considering.

Kevin -

Call Paul Hastings at Wheelock College in Boston - I believe he has done
some work in this area.

I am interested in the accessibility of online communities including (but
not exclusively) Facebook. I am reporting to a committee which is
evaluating implementation of online communities on campus. I searched
through some emails and I didn't see much discussion on this issue. I don't
want to recreate the wheel if online community sites have been evaluated
already. Another question is whether people with disabilities are using
these online communities?

PS I am looking forward to attending the Higher Ground conference in Boulder
Colorado for the first time this year!
