Accessible Instructional Multimedia: Live blog from CATS 2008

AIMs are online multimedia resources that demo to faculty the use of accessible technologies in teaching.

AIMs enable faculty to understand the ways that emerging technologies can be used to support student success.

Project supported by EnACT to help faculty and staff to develop accessibility training resources to help faculty learn about incorporating accessibility into their course materials... or at least I think that what's this is about... actually, not all of them are about accessibility, but most are.

AIM projects are added to MERLOT repository. Most appear to be videos.

Total of 40 projects planned from eight CSUs... 6 from Chico... wOOt!

6 completed to date, 13 under development.

Next round of projects... applications due in April

Topics wanted:
  • Universal design for learning
  • Assistive technology
  • Distance Learning
  • Technologies designed to address particular Instructional challenges
  • Case studies on deploying accessible course materials
  • Other topics
Then it all devolved into one guy asking a bunch of questions...
