A Comparison of Learning Management System Accessibility

"If not designed with accessibility in mind, Learning Management Systems (LMS) can pose accessibility problems for students and instructors with disabilities." The four authors of this paper, all accessibility experts in higher education settings, have been engaged in improving accessibility of various LMS over several years. This paper was presented at the 2011 Educause Conference. Categories that were tested include Login/Configuration/Compatibility Testing, Personalization/Customization, Navigation, Common Modules/Tools, Forms, Authoring Tools/Content Creation, Help/Documentation, and Unique Features that Affect Accessibility.

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
