Thanks to everyone who participated the Live Twitter

shared. We liked it so much, we're planning to do it again - during
FridayLive! So stay tuned for more details. Live feeds [FridayLivelier!]
will be available on our homepage and on Twitter!
How can authors and publishers make course materials more accessible?
How can faculty and academic support professionals encourage and enable
students to prepare effectively for course meetings, activities, and assignments?
