This morning I tripped over a resource in searching for something else. This site is called "Teach Online: Virtual University Design and Technology."

http://teachvu.vu.msu.edu/public

I don't quite know what to make of it. It looks as though it has some excellent information for faculty about making the jump from the classroom to online teaching, and some excellent information for the technology folks about how website design impacts on learning. But I can't find anything that even HINTS at the idea of being concerned about accessibility, and I can't figure out where, within the structure of their information, such discussion would even belong.

How are we ever going to make headway in getting the word out when credible offerings from established institutions purport to train folks on how to deliver education online, and never even mention the issues WE consider salient?
