[nobe-l] tutoring online

I'd like to combine two recent threads for tutoring and teaching 
online.  There's a website called tutor.com where interaction between 
students and tutors occurs in real time online.  Has anyone applied for 
freelance work at that site or used it as a student? The software they 
advertize is called microsoft silverlight? and I think that is a web 
plug in, but I'm not entirely sure of the technical requirements with 
screen readers.

Expanding further, what are people's experiences generally with online 
course management systems and screenreaders from the instructor roles?  
When I taught classes on campus last year, I posted powerpoint 
presentations for my lectures to WEBCT (now blackboard I think) and 
ignored the rest of that platform.  I'm not sure if I'll apply for 
online teaching positions in the future, but I see those jobs and don't 
want to close off those options for employment.

Happy Holidays.
