IMG_3782 Held at the beautiful Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, this year’s Blackboard Teaching and Learning Conference was a great success. Attendees participated in a wide range of sessions, from the latest features to be introduced by Blackboard to ways to enhance the learning environment with extra tools. ReadSpeaker was one of the sponsors of the conference, sponsoring the lunches. ReadSpeaker team members were available all day at the ReadSpeaker booth, where attendees could learn about how to enhance their digital learning environment with text to speech. On Thursday, April 7, Joop Heijenrath gave a presentation about accessible design in the VLE: why accessibility is important, who is affected, and why all course materials should be designed with the Universal Design for Learning principle in mind.
