Hi Kristy--

You may also want to contact people at several universities to find out about their experiences. Several people who come to mind: Scott Williams at University of Michigan (swims@umich.edu), Brendan Guenther at Michigan State University (brendan@msu.edu), Ken Petrie at Ohio State University, and Brian Richwine at Indiana University (brichwin@indiana.edu). All would be happy to help, I'm sure. Also, as she noted earlier, Jutta has a ton of experience and knowledge in the accessible eLearning space and would be an invaluable contact. 

Good luck!
