Join this important session to hear key success stories for improving the accessibility of instructional resources to people with disabilities. The panel will include information on crowd sourcing captioning with free online tools, moving accessibility into the main stream of IT decision making, using common tools to create accessible on-line instructional materials, and how to leverage the concept of universal design to create information in multiple formats to serve the diverse needs of all students, including students with disabilities. A student with a disability will also be part of the panel to give his perspective of when online materials are accessible and when they're not. http://www.educause.edu/midwest-regional-conference/2013/successes-implementing-it-accessibility-higher-education
