1. The line is blurring between the Web requirements and the
Software requirements of Section 508 as DHTML techniques
continue to be used to create a new generation of Web

2. If on-line learning technologies are also part of your
course, the accessibility of those technologies should also
be a consideration. This may trigger the requirements of
both Software and Multi-media Section 508 requirements.

3. What technologies are being used to create and deliver
course materials?

>> If there are interactive components or other software:
>> 1194.21 Software applications and operating systems.
