This paper discusses the potential of Activity Theory as a tool for analyzing accessible e-learning practice in higher education and uses Activity Theory to explore the factors that may be mediating accessible e-learning practice. This exploration in underpinned by two central questions: do tools, rules and division of labour mediate accessible e-learning activities? Are there contradictions between central components of an accessible e-learning system and can identification of these contradictions help to develop and progress future practice? In exploring these questions, this paper concludes that accessible e-learning activity will not develop until tools, rules, roles and responsibilities are developed that all the relevant communities can apply comfortably and consistently.
