At this time, the Wilmette Institute is not an accredited institution and has a part time Director and staff, with a very limited budget. Therefore, its ability to assist learners with disabilities is limited. Moodle, the online course management system, is designed so that it can be scanned by reading software. Most course readings are presented in Adobe PDF format that can be scanned by reading software. Scans of some older printed documents have not been processed with optical character recognition software, and thus cannot be read reliably by it. Most of the online readings via other internet websites are accessible. The Wilmette Institute continues to look for ways to improve course features and functions to ensure better accessibility.
Participants with disabilities may find that taking the course with a study group will enable better access to online materials. The Wilmette Institute encourages local study groups, and gives registration discounts to groups of 2 to 20 people who wish to study a course together. These groups need not live in the same locality.
If you have a question or suggestion, please contact the Director, Robert Stockman, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-wilmette (877-945-6388), or Candace Moore Hill at email@example.com . We look forward to hearing from you.
