Hi ATHENites & all in DSSHE-Land,

Our college district has been using Blackboard & WebCT for years and is
asking for an evaluation of the system(s) for future renewal or
suggestions for other learning management systems.

Are any of you all aware of any LMS that do a better than average job at

electronic access for the B/VI & D/HI, reading disabilities (using
screen readers) etc.?

Any suggestions would be most welcome. We have a short time line to make

suggestions to our Center for Teaching & Learning and I will happily
pass along any of your collectively wise evaluations of other systems.

Thanks in advance!


PS have been invited to present at a district-wide technology conference

next week...historic, as it is the first time an individual disability
resources office in our college district has been invited!! Well, it may

be it's the first time an individual office actually ever submitted a
proposal, but hey, it does count as a 'first,' right??
