Courseload Releases First eText Platform with Accessible Collaborative Features

A news release appearing in Campus Technology  announced that Courseload has launched version 2.3 of its software with a stated focus on Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), touting the release as the first e-text platform to provide a single, unified, collaborative experience for faculty and students of all abilities.

In developing the new version last year, Courseload created an Accessibility Advisory Board (AAB) to guide its efforts to advance accessibility within higher education’s transition to digital technologies. The AAB brought together leaders from nine universities and national advocacy and technology groups.
