We are currently working with the MSU Usability Lab and the MSU Center 
for People with Disabilities for our LON-CAPA Usability and 
Accessibility study.  The Director of the MSU Center for People with 
Disabilities has already performed some screen reader tests with Gerd's 
MMP-based course.  He has asked for more perspectives of LON-CAPA.  He 
is particularly interested in "rendering some of the 
multi-media/graphical/spatial content in a more useful way for screen 

If you would like to volunteer your course from this semester or a 
previous semester as another perspective for this study, please email me 
at felicia@lon-capa.org to discuss this further.  For the most part, you 
would simply have to add the Directors of both the Usability Center and 
the Center for People with Disabilities as well as a graduate student 
researcher to your course and adjust their open and due dates 
accordingly.  We are particularly interested in finding courses which 
use organic response, randomly labeled images, GNU plots, 
click-on-image, or any similar graphically dependendent problems.
