4.1 Access 2 OER discussion at OCWC 2009
From: Tom Caswell: I am looking forward to facilitating a conversation among such wonderful people in the OER access and accessibility communities. I will send more information about our panel members soon. As a reminder, in this session we will discuss assistive technology efforts as well as projects to improve access to OER in developing countries. The session will be held in Monterrey, MX on April 22, from 11:30am to 1pm CDT (UTC/GMT -5 hours). This is an exploratory session to look at what projects are under way to improve accessibility and access to OER, and how is the OCW community participating. How are accessibility and access challenges similar and what strategies might offer solutions to both problems?
