Blackboard 6.0 and WebCT Vista accessibility evaluation

The University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign is in the process of
selecting a campus wide course management system. WebCT and Blackboard
will be demonstrating their latest products on Monday the 18th and Tuesday
the 19th. Both claim some type of conformance to section 508 web
accessibility requirements, but we all know that doesn't mean much for
functional accessibility in many cases. I am in the process of reviewing a
demo version of these products and have created two web resources (one for
each product) with my notes and questions. I will be updating these notes
on Monday, since I will have some more features to test.

If anyone has any additional information on the accessibility features or
problems of these products, I would appreciate the information.

My notes:
Blackboard 6.0:

Thanks for your help,
