Teach Act?


From: Shuttlesworth, Rachel

Hello, esteemed list.

I am getting questions from my campus regarding the Teach Act (not the TEACH Act) discussed here: http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/bill-would-require-instructional-technology-to-be-accessible-to-all/48383?cid=wc&;utm_source=wc&utm_medium=en. Would it require something different that what universities are already expected to do as clarified by the Dear Colleague Letter from the DOE and DOJ in 2010?

Any guidance is welcome.
