Wright State is hosting another conference call for schools outsourcing their email systems to Microsoft.  These quarterly calls include schools from across the country who would like to discuss technical and general support issue, legal issues, etc with Microsoft's Live@edu and Office 365 services.  

If you would like to participate, please reply back to and I'll send you the call-in instructions.  

Here's the general announcement:

It's time for another group call to discuss our common interests and issues
with outsourcing email to Microsoft and Google.  Wright State University hosts 
these calls once a quarter and invites any schools planning to outsource 
their email services or that have already implemented hosted email to join
in on the call.  We usually have 20-25 schools participate.

Hi Sue, The meeting ended early, around 1:20. If you called after that, that's probably the reason. Christian
Sorry you missed the call Sue. Not sure why you were unable to get through, unless maybe you arrived right after we had adjourned (it was a short meeting). Here's a summary: - We have an "Accessibility logo", thanks to Christy Blew at University of Illinois. I'm working on creating a home page for that, explaining its intended purpose along with an appropriate creative commons license. - We have a poster for the IT Accessibility Constituent Group, that includes the logo, 8 Great Questions to ask about IT Accessibility, and information about the CG. EDUCAUSE will print that poster and put it on permanent display, along with other CG posters, at the conference. - Jon Gunderson has printed stickers with the logo on them. They're generic (not related to any particular event) so we can really wear and/or distribute them anywhere, and they'll be unveiled next week at the HighEdWeb conference in Milwaukee (Jon and I will both be there). - Jon and Cristy will be working on a pair of print handouts: A flyer that contains some of the same information that's on the poster, and a supplemental sheet that lists accessibility-related sessions at the conference. - There is a list of accessibility-related sessions on the wiki: We are also planning to add sessions to the wiki where accessibility might - or should - be discussed. These are sessions that aren't necessarily accessiblity-focused, but where accessibility is a topic of concern, such as the Internet2 eContent Pilot. If you know of sessions that meet this description (anyone), please feel free to add them to the wiki. Otherwise, anyone wanting to help out the conference, the best way to do that is simply to talk about accessibility. Ask accessibility questions of vendors, ask questions during sessions, wear an Accessibility sticker, and hand out flyers. There are also a couple of key events that hopefully everyone will attend - I'll send announcements about those separately.
