EDUCAUSE/Internet2 eText Pilots and Accessibility

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Abstract

In 2012, EDUCAUSE and Internet2 began a series of pilots to explore e-text/e-content business models and institutional adoption. The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) expressed concerns about the pilots and the accessibility of e-text/e-content for students who have visual disabilities. Executives from our three organizations have since established a basis for collaboration moving forward.  These letters articulate the NFB’s concerns, the organizations’ responses, and the commitment to sustained dialogue on the e-texts/e-content efforts as they move forward.
