The AccessComputing project, funded by the National Science Foundation, conducted a survey to find out how common it is for faculty at postsecondary institutions to teach about accessibility in their computing courses. This presentation By Richard Ladner, Andrew Ko, and Sheryl Burgstahler will share the results of this study and emphasize the importance of teaching future developers about accessible design principles and practices.

EASI resources provide up-to-date information about how institutions can create and maintain system-wide IT facilities that will be accessible for all of its members whether students, faculty or guests. EASI Webinars and Courses themselves use applications that are accessible to users of adaptive technologies.
EASI provides several Webinars each month on topics related to the accessibility of accessible information technology. Many cover the accessibility of Web sites, the accessibility of commercial software, legislation related to accessibility and almost anything of interest to users of adaptive technologies or trainers of these technologies.
Many of the Webinars are free. Others provide more in-depth information about or training on the use of such applications. These are fee-based Webinar series.

EASI's mission is to serve as a resource by providing information and guidance in the area of access-to-information technologies by individuals with disabilities. We stay informed about developments and advancements within the adaptive computer technology field and spread that information to colleges, universities, K-12 schools, libraries and into the workplace.
EASI disseminates know-how about accessible information technology through online courses that can lead to the Certificate in Accessible Information Technology and through frequent both free and fee-based Webinars. EASI courses and Webinars are provided in an accessible format, and its instructors and presenters either are users of adaptive technology or are professional staff supporting adaptive technologies.
