Who can benefit from AccessIT?
AccessIT was the National Center on Accessible Information Technology in Education. The mission was to promote the use of electronic and information technology (E&IT) for students and employees with disabilities in educational institutions at all academic levels. The following are the primary groups who benefited from this work:
- policy makers, including school principals, district directors, technology directors, and others who developed policies, guidelines, and procedures regarding planning for and procuring electronic and information technology;
- implementers, including educators (in both general education and special education, precollege and postsecondary), computer lab personnel, library staff, and others who implemented electronic and information technology and support its use by students, teachers, and other employees;
- students and employees with disabilities, as well as their families and advocates, who used or should have been able to use electronic and information technology.
