Re: Accessible Online Learning CG - June update and call to contribute

Hi all

Thanks to those of you who have commented on the document so far! Several interesting discussions have emerged around topics such as:
* accessing stories of web users oriented towards online learning
* the relationship between guidance provided on the WAI site and best practices for inclusive learning
* the specific relevance of semantic structure to online learning accessibility
* defining “vendors” in the context of organisational policy for online learning accessibility
* games-based learning

We encourage those of you who would like to contribute to these discussions, or other recommendations in the document, to do so by the end of June, either by commenting on the Google doc or by responding to this email.

As a reminder, the doc is available at:

Many thanks!
