At Blackboard, we are serious about our effort on making our platform accessible to all users. A year ago, when Blackboard was awarded the annual Dr. Jacob Bolotin Award for “groundbreaking work in accessibility,” we decided to reinvest the $10,000 award and put in an additional $15,000 to form the Blackboard Accessibility Grant to support work enabling education for students with disabilities. A great number of submissions were received. It was a tough decision to pick out the five awardees, given the amount of good proposals we received, where they all showed great potential to make a great impact to those with disabilities. With the wonderful help of an evaluation committee, consisting of a team of professionals in the Accessibility Community from outside and inside of Blackboard, we’re proud to announce that we have reached a decision in our list of five awardees for the Blackboard Accessibility Grant.
