Section 508 courseware mods


Section 508 of the 1998 US Rehabilitation Act is now requiring all e-learning content providers to US Federal Agencies to design courseware compliant w/this directive. Are there any companies out there that have done this, & would share lessons-learned?

    Fred, I’ve been doing some research in this area for my own company and came across the following companies who provide services to help clients achieve Section 508 compliance. Their websites are also useful sources of reference.

    Optavia Corporation (
    WebABLE, Inc. (
    Center for Applied Special Technology –
    The Sierra Group (
    Information Management Consultants, Inc. (
    Deque Consulting (

    Also SkillSoft and SmartForce have both recently achieved 508 and there are some useful hints and tips on their websites (see their Press Releases).
