Hello Sheryl. I am looking into the moodle platform which seems to be fairly 
accessible. I just looked at it last night so haven't really dealved into 
it. Moodle will allow you to create exams online, collect assignments from 
students, have an online gradebook, etc. Like I say I have to dealve into it 
more.  I'll take a look at  tutor.com to see how well the software works. 
The netflix website uses Microsoft   silverlight. I believe it's not that 
accessible-- at least I had trouble with the netflix site but I'll check out 

Hope Paulos
