Over half a million U.S. small businesses will fail this year according to statistics from the U.S. Small Business Administration. For every one business that succeeds, ten will not. Business failure is not only common with new start-up companies but also with businesses that have been around for some time.

An analysis by Coleman Management Services Inc., found that less than 17% of the reasons cited for business failure are due to outside influences such as inflation and economic reasons, or union problems. 83% of the reasons a business fails are within the control of business owners and managers.

Australian e-learning and accessibility

"New extensions to the Disability Discrimination Act, aimed at improving education and training, will soon affect online learning and computer training generally." So begins an article in last weeks Age (see Impediment no barrier By Eric Wilson - December 8, 2003 - for full article).

I recently assisted Reece Lamshed from Binary Blue in testing the accessibility of websites in the Australian educational sector. Unfortunately many sites were unable to conform to even the most basic of requirements.

We have been developing an Accessibility Wizard. This is a tool that guides members of a website / application production team to ensure that the work they do on a project will comply with the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative.

In the meantime Accessibility is a growing issue for programmers developing both Learning Management and Content Management syetems for the educational sector.
