Hello - and a very warm welcome to the Ethos Online Community Raymond. Please make yourself feel at home :) I am aware of some of the work you have and are doing around accessibility and access via online and blended education is an important focus for many of the community members, so it would be great if you wanted to crosspost from your blog at any point. Posts are featured in the monthly community newsletter, as well as shared via G+ and Twitter. I am aware of your work (and noted the work you have done with Niki Davis!). Please let me know if you have any questions. All the best, Hazel
