From the Field…

I'm writing to you to see if you could give me some info on 508 and e-packs. I know that you're heavily involved with Distance Ed issues and our college (***) is going to be going through accreditation in the Fall of 2007 and I want to address some of our 508 issues now.

We currently offer hundreds of sections online and a great many of them use publisher e-packs that I have found to not be accessible. What I'm wondering is, have you had much communication with any of the publishers that distribute these? I know that we're using E-packs from Thomson, McGraw Hill and others, and the 508 compliance of some of these is not even close to where it needs to be.
