2nd Annual Accessible ELearning Leadership Awards

CHICAGO, March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CourseAvenue announced the winners of the 2 nd Annual Accessible eLearning Leadership Awards.  These awards recognize those organizations that are producing true accessible e-Learning courses – courses that serve both learners who use assistive technologies and those who do not, without the need to create multiple versions of each course.  Awards were given in Government, Commercial and Not-for-Profit categories.  These industry leaders have demonstrated how the intelligent use of instructional design and technology can produce e-Learning titles in the true spirit of complying with both the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1974. 

Producing accessible e-Learning has been an elusive goal for many.  Although the ADA and Section 508 are federal law, too often compliance is either non-existent or an afterthought.  And while those who use assistive technologies arguably have the most to gain from online education, compliance often means, at best, a "plain HTML" or "PDF" version of an e-Learning course.  These award winners clearly show that the days of creating separate or limited e-Learning courses to achieve ADA and Section 508 compliance are over.

Congratulations to the recognized leaders.  A donation to Spectrios Institute for Low Vision will be made on behalf of each of the winners.

Commercial Category      Veolia Environmental Systems Tech

Government Category      USDA - Team AgLearn

Not-for-profit Category      National Education Association Foundation

About the Accessible eLearning Leadership Awards The Accessible e-Learning Leadership Awards recognizes organizations in Commercial, Not-for-profit, and Government categories that demonstrate dedication to advancing the field of Accessible eLearning through successful development and deployment of education materials that meet or exceed the standards defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1974.  For more information, visit http://www.CourseAvenue.com/Award

As part of recognizing these leading organizations, a donation will be made on their behalf to the Spectrios Institute for Low Vision ( www.spectrios.org) – an organization that provides comprehensive visual rehabilitation programs that includes a low vision evaluation, counseling, and teaching the skills of daily living and the use of technology.
