Live blogging MSU Accessible Learning Institute

Today, I am attending MSU's inaugural Accessible Learning Institute. Under the cut, I will be live-blogging the event until Noon. I'm excited to be here, as this is a great opportunity to learn more about the broad issues surrounding accessibility and the implications of the accessibility movement on education, especially in regard to online and blended teaching.

Disclaimer: Live blogging begins below, and consists of my notes on the presentations given. They are not verbatim to the words being spoken, nor are they verbatim to the words on the screen.
