[Athen] Opinion, enough with the preaching to the choir!

I'm getting flooded with announcements for webinars on how to make online learning accessible.

I applaud all that effort.

But what's really needed now are a few webinars for students on what to do when their content isn't!

For example:

How to communicate with your professor and turn them on to the best resources.

How to know when an access issue is a small thing you can quickly resolve.

How to determine if it's a problem with your level of knowledge, your access technology or the course content.

How to find and use free tools you can use right now to get better access.

How to get results from publisher courseware technical support.

How to determine if your electronic textbook is accessible and what to do when it's not.

How to get a refund for inaccessible content.

How to report problems and advocate effectively.
