Hi Cath,

I love your idea and motivation for collaboration. It is definitely the right way to go.

I know Ken was interested in accessibility of Aleks some time ago and he even initiated a kind of meeting with them. I was invited to the meeting but I don't exactly recall what has been decided for.

I guess we are not using it here in our campus but I would be glad to collaborate and help in any way and shape I can.

Hello All,
Yes, once again the ALEKS accessibility issues are coming under scrutiny here on campus.
At this point we are curious if other institutions have been putting pressure on McGraw-Hill to make the exam more accessible.

Would other folks be interested in collaborating on a multi university campaign of concern, not unlike what we did with Blackboard?

With the support of tools such as Poet and DIAGRAM, is there validity in their argument of saying that they need to wait for MathML to have more browser support and adoption? Should that be the only solution for making this assessment platform accessible?

Thanks for any and all comments,
