My school, Cleveland State, is going through something simular but
with a MapleSoft product. We are working on two solutions. I am
creating a Blackboard Community with assessments using LaTex for the
math expressions and descriptions of the graphics. I am also creating
MathML and Braille versions for students to take in our office.
I could probably share the end products with you when they are
complete if you'd like.
