Inside Higher Ed today carries a story about the Office of Civil Right of the U.S. Dept. of Education requiring a South Carolina educational institution to make its websites accessible to those with vision impairments or blindness. 

Do the current crop of MOOCs (online courses) comply with that requirement?  Has anyone thought that issue through?
