The accessibility of online courses is a topic that has been coming up recently in a variety of circles. My background, before returning to school for Instructional Technology, was in postsecondary disability services, with a focus on online accessibility.

Significant improvements were made to the Export/Import test feature in the latest Service Pack. All questions are now retained in exported and imported tests, including questions that originate outside the exported test, such as Question Sets, Random Blocks, and Question Links. When the user exports a test and imports it back into a different course, all questions are now present irrespective of their origin.
Questions that are in Question Sets and Random Blocks in the originating test are imported into the new course in question pools. Single questions that were linked in the originating test are imported as “native” (non-linked) questions.
