EASI Barrier-free E-learning course has the information you need to provide
a level online learning space for students with disabilities.

Still more schools and universities are puting courses online or putting
course components on the web as reported by the recently released Campus
Computing Survey as presented at last week's EDUCAUSE conference.
Institutions are relying increasingly on course management systems to
provide these materials.  The survey also showed a distinct increased
awareness of colleges of their need to make web pages accessible to
students with disabilities.  EASI's Barrier-free E-learning course begins
online on November 4 and runs for a month.  EASI's mission is to provide
schools and universities with the know-how they need to make their
education and information technologies fully accessible for students with
disabilities.  Register online at:
