Some quick thoughts regarding the ELearning topic:

I want to suggest that you add another IMS GC specification, Accessible Portable Item Profile (APIP).  Many good questions related to APIP and Web accessibility and standards gaps/research opportunities.

You might also specifically call out assessment of learning, simple example being quizzes or other ways that a student demonstrates understanding.  Emerging, innovative assessment items can pose significant accessibility challenges. Questions of item complexity and what is actually being measured (AT skills vs Subject knowledge)

Finally, you might consider bringing in, or at least adding reference to CAST's Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Hi David,
We have tried to take into account the e-learning experiences in the related topics, but we could divide them into a separate topic (maybe titled "Accessible e-learning experiences and examples" or something like that) if this help in make clearer the contributions we invite.
What do you think about it?

Thank you so much!

Oggetto: Re: [for review] Accessible E-Learning

Hi all

Re the call for participation - this should make for a very worthwhile symposium.

I think the discussion topics are appropriate - and comprehensively covered - though possibly we could draw a distinction between content accessibility and learning experience accessibility? In other words, how can e-learning systems support authors of courses to think about inclusion in the design of the full experience of participating in a course, including all the learning and assessment activities, in contrast to the more fine-grained challenge of looking at specific units of content?

Hope this helps.

> Moreover a lot of standards are stated (http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/wiki/E-learning_Accessibility). Although I tried to keep track with the references, I'm still not sure whether all of the standards are referenced. I'd recommend to use references  during the text.
