Association for Educational Communications and Technology – Distance Learning Division Issue Series

February 4, 2003

The series is meant to look deeply at issues we may only know about peripherally. It is also a forum for new perspectives and innovative work on issues that affect the AECT community at large. Each paper/discussion will last for 30 days.

The first paper and discussion speaks to issues of accessibility of web pages. Stephanie Roberts, the lead Instructional Designer of the National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities at the University of Northern Colorado, writes about cognitive accessibility and how it is much more than making pages physically accessible to all learners.

Please join us in reading the paper, available at the site, and taking part in the asynchronous discussion, moderated by the author.

If you have ideas for future paper/discussions in the series, please contact David Winograd at
