This was an interesting presentation I attended at CSUN 2011 comparing 
accessibility of 4 different Learning Management Systems: Blackboard, 
Desire2Learn, Moodle, and SAKAI.

They did the evaluation based on their own ideas of what constituted 
accessibility, but the results may be of some interest.

Hello everyone,

My sincerest apologies for the delay, but finally the paper on LMS 
accessibility is here.

My colleagues and I would like to underscore that this is an ongoing 
project, and some of the testing is still in progress and/or under 
investigation. We welcome your feedback on this project.

We are considering expanding this kind of accessibility/usability 
evaluation to other products, such as library resources, communication 
systems, e-mail systems, etc. If you find such projects helpful, it 
would be great if you could also help us in these efforts. Please drop 
me a note if you are interested in helping enhance the criteria, 
performing accessibility/usability testing for any of these LMS.

Here is the link to the paper. Once you are on that page, you might want 
to open the LMS-specific results in new browser tab/window 
(control+enter or shift+enter respectively):
