It sounds like Moodle http://moodle.org/ could be the solution you could
use. Moodle is a free open-source learning management system. You would need
a hosting service to install it on. There are some 3rd party hosting
companies that will set it all up for you for a price.

There is a free video conference mod
http://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=mod_videoconference but I have
never used it so I don't know if it will work with your assistive

Perhaps others will chime in on this.
