Hi Susan,

I will also be building a VLE using Moodle this year for a course NCBI
are running, so I am interested in continuing this thread and finding
out how you are getting on. Please keep us posted and feel free to get
in touch off list if you need any help.

As John has already mentioned I believe that Moodle is already pretty
good out of the box, in accessibility terms (though I will also be
fulling testing this assertion). Bear in mind that the accessibility of
Moodle aside, endevouring to make all of the materials that are used in
the VLE (teaching resources etc) accessible and available in multiple
formats will go a long way to creating a level playing field for everyone.

Good luck with it.
