View "IT Accessibility: What Campus Leaders Have to Say"

Just prior to the EDUCAUSE 2012 Annual Conference, I noted that the AccessComputing project at the University of Washington would premier a video at the conference on technology accessibility for persons with disabilities. Produced with support from the National Science Foundation, “IT Accessibility: What Campus Leaders Have to Say” is now available from the AccessComputing site at:

AccessComputing has also made the video available via YouTube to facilitate further web distribution; you can watch the video from there or get a link to embed it in your own web page at:

The video presents university presidents, CIOs, and other higher education IT leaders discussing their views on the ethical as well as compliance obligations of colleges and universities related to IT accessibility, how fulfilling those obligations benefits all higher education stakeholders—not just those with disabilities, and the approaches that colleges, universities, and their leaders might take to achieve accessible institutional IT environments.
