[d2l-consortium] D2L AIG teleconference, Friday, January 9,

Thu Jan 8 10:50:33 EST 2009
I'm starting to work with Sandra on a proposal for a presentation on
"Creating Accessible Courses in an LMS", for the Guelph Accessibility
Conference. I'm thinking about submitting a similar proposal for FUSION '09
and EDUCAUSE '09. I'd love to put a group together to present this, so, if
anyone on this list is keen on participating, give me a shout.
