Hi Debi,

We upload the letters to both the student and the professors through our course management software (our own version of blackboard). This allows us to make sure the letters are under a secure log in, and that both parties are receiving the information.

This is a non-technical question, but since I am doing some research I thought I would include ideas from my friends "down south" ;)

We are currently debating the pros and cons of distributing accommodation information to profs via email.

Could you please tell me if your institution is asking students to distribute their accommodation letters themselves or if you are emailing them directly to the professors.

If you are emailing, can you explain how you are doing it, problems you have experienced with this process and any pros and cons you'd like to share.
