On July 26-27th the California State 
University System called a meeting to 
develop a Digital Marketplace for 
educational content.  The meeting 
pulled together publishers, LMS 
representatives, CMS representatives, 
several consultants and various 
representatives form the California 
State University.  What was most 
interesting was the fact that 
accessibility was stated as a basic 
requirement of system design.  Data 
exchanged across the Marketplace will 
be standards based.  I presented some 
slides based on “Essential Components” 
as an introduction to accessible 
architecture.  The group was 
receptive.  To my knowledge this is 
the first system developed by the 23 
Campus system that is being built with 
accessibility in mind.
