Educational
accessibility presents challenges. But it is a necessary one to ensure that
everyone can benefit from a higher education, and online learning is no
exception. 

At this
year’s Symposium, Andrea Gregg, senior instructional designer with World
Campus, is leading the World Campus Panel on Learning Design Projects and
Initiatives.The panel will focus on three subjects: how World Campus is
handling the accessibility needs in their course designs and for their
students; learning management system (LMS) reviews for fully online distance
education courses; and the merging of teaching methods and audiences in an IST
course from a faculty perspective.
