I’ve came across a free course on e-learning accessibility that will be of interest to those developing e-learning courses. It’s ‘masters’ level content from the Open University which is available as a free trial module on the OU’s Learning Space site.
The module is wide ranging but some of the key areas it covers are:
- Overview of Accessibility and disability.
- Different types of impairments
- Assistive technologies
- Reasonable adjustments (and avoiding disadvantaging non-disabled students)
- What to do when a learning objective can’t be achieved
