The .LRN Consortium is pleased to announce a $5,000 award from the Yahoo! Employee Foundation (via the Silicon Valley Community Foundation) for continuation of the Zen Accessibility Project.
The focus of the work will be on adding dynamic yet accessible UI elements into .LRN and making .LRN more accessible using WCAG recommendations. As part of this work, the Forums package will be used as a model for continued work on accessibility in .LRN.
The Yahoo! Employee Foundation (YEF) is a unique grassroots employee driven philanthropic organization. All the money is donated by employees, and all activities are run by a volunteer committee of Yahoo! employees.
We would like to thank Yahoo! employee Stephen Boettcher for championing this grant.
