Moodle Accessibility Collaboration Group Overview
About Moodle Accessibility Collaboration Group
Moodle is a powerful and free learning management system used in many countries and by many higher education systems, including the University of Illinois and the University of Montana.
To improve the accessibility/usability of this learning management system, we have established this collaboration group to work together with Moodle developers, administrators, IT professionals, and other interested entities and individuals.
We meet on the 1st Monday of each month at 10am USA Pacific Daylight Saving Time/5pm UTC. (Time zone converter: http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/) The next regular meeting time will be December 5th, 2016. To view recordings of previous meetings, open the Teleconferences menu for this website.
We welcome anyone who is interested in improving the accessibility of Moodle to join this group. You don’t need to be a technical guru or accessibility expert to join; however, it is expected that you are familiar with the basics of accessibility and are willing to dedicate a few hours each month to this collaboration effort.
