Accessible Blackboard Part 1

Learning Management Systems have the potential to improve the quality of the interactions between teachers and students, but they can also present serious barriers to students with disabilities. As demand for learning management software increases so does the importance of delivering accessible software. In this session we will talk about Blackboard's commitment and approach to accessibility, show you examples of what is working well within Blackboard Learn and talk about features that can be used to improve the experience for students with disabilities.
