"Thank you Blue Trunk for offering to give a guest video lecture on accessibility and universal design. This content is not always easy to teach and I’m not sure of where to look for good resources. Blue Trunk helped a lot, they helped with an engaging guest lecture and made it easy to create assignments based on their guest lecture."
