Hello all!

Staff at my institution are organizing a learning management system (LMS)
symposium sponsored by NERCOMP on October 24th in Norwood, Massachusetts.
We are in need of speakers and I have been tasked with seeing if I could
locate speakers to talk about accessibility needs in an LMS environment.
Speakers could receive free registration to the conference.

*This day-long event will provide all LMS users in the region an
opportunity to collaborate and network around issues common to all
users. Additionally, there will be ample time (in the afternoon) for
BlackBoard, Brightspace, Canvas, and Moodle User Groups to break out into
sessions and discuss tips, issues and best practices specific to each
LMS.This event should draw approx. 100-150 attendees. This will be a
mixture of instructional designers and technologists, IT folks working with
the LMS, librarians, and others from higher ed.*

*Here is the basic *

agenda for the day:


8:30a - 9a: Registration, breakfast and small group chats

9a - 10a: Keynote Speaker- individual/panel speaking to the future of

10a - 10:15a: Morning Break
