Ditto, I’d love to participate. I did evaluate an initial bit of Canvas here as we’re switching from Blackboard. The person in charge loaded some course modules for me that were for the most part inaccessible but not sure he knew what he was doing.

I would be glad to participate. My last assignment to use canvas was as a Portuguese prof. and not as a DRS manager or as an AT specialist. I would be able to perhaps add an extra dimension to the conversations.

Hi All,

Do any of you have an active dialog with Instructure about
accessibility of Canvas? If so, would you mind expanding that to
include others? If no one's currently having that dialog, are there
others on the list with an interest in having one?

ATHEN has a history of engaging in productive collaborative
relationships with vendors, including LMS vendors such as Blackboard
and Desire2Learn. I'd be interested in exploring the possibility of
having a similar relationship with Canvas. Anyone else?
