The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to
share your experiences with accessible e-learning for an online
symposium to be conducted on 16 December 2013. See:
        Accessible E-Learning Online Symposium

The primary objective of this symposium is to share e-learning
experiences and research; discuss different approaches to address
accessibility issues in e-learning contexts; and explore next steps to
advance accessibility in e-learning environments, including Massive Open
Online Courses (MOOCs). In particular, the objective is to investigate:
* Relationships and integration between content accessibility and
interface accessibility.
* Evaluating accessibility of e-learning environments.
* Accessibility of e-learning environments used in non-conventional
contexts and/or by means of non-conventional devices (i.e. m-learning,
* Privacy issues in profiling learners and e-learning environments users.
* Experiences and examples of accessible MOOCs.
* Comparisons and analysis of e-learning standards related to
* Experiences and examples of standards implementations in e-learning
* Different standards, compliance and integration.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers, practitioners, and users with
disabilities interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to
advance research and development in that area. The online symposia
include a panel with the authors of accepted papers, and provide an
opportunity for participants to ask questions. Symposia proceedings,
transcript, and a report are available publicly online afterward.

*If you are interested in contributing to this Symposium*, please submit
