Thanks for talking with me this morning. As I mentioned, I¹m writing an
article looking at how good a job‹or not‹colleges are doing providing
technology that is accessible to people with disabilities. I¹d like to speak
with students about technology challenges and problems they¹ve faced. I¹m
interested in stories about the full range of digital materials:
course-management systems (Blackboard, Moodle, etc.), online journals,
e-mail, e-books, administrative web sites (for applying, registering,
learning about colleges, etc.), lecture recordings, live meetings online,
and anything else that I may not have thought of. I¹d love to talk with
students about their experiences in online courses. I¹m also interested in
speaking with students who have tried to use the free online academic
materials known as ³open courseware,² the most famous example being MIT¹s
web site: http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm
I can be contacted via email or at the phone number below.
Thanks again for your help.
