Welcome

This Group is a split-off of the Drupal Education Group and aims ito deal with issues and challenges that are unique to Drupal in post-secondary academic environments. This group has been founded as a result of Drupalcon San Francisco 2010 when it became obvious that there was a need for a place to extend the fruitful discussions that began there.

Accessibility module

Thanks to the help of Jesse and others, I have been granted access to the accessibility module on Drupal.org and merged in a sandbox project that merges several disparate modules around content, theming, and automated testing.

You can find out more on the project page about what's included, the one sub-module we are missing is one for generalized reporting, which is difficult given that all testing is client-side now, but I am looking for a co-maintainer to take things on.
