Hello everyone,

Finally the paper on LMS accessibility is here.

I would like to underscore that this is an ongoing project, and some of the testing is still in progress and/or under investigation. We welcome your feedback on this project.

We are considering expanding this kind of accessibility/usability evaluation to other products, such as library resources, communication systems, e-mail systems, etc. If you find such projects helpful, it would be great if you could also help us in these efforts. Please drop me a note if you are interested in helping enhance the criteria, performing accessibility/usability testing for any of these LMS.

Here is the link to the paper. Once you are on that page, you might want to open the LMS-specific results in new browser tab/window (control+enter or shift+enter respectively):
