MOOCAP – Education on accessible design in ICT

MOOCAP CourseMap_v3_600Another acronym has arrived: MOOC – Massive Open Online Course. These are unlimited open access courses delivered online and devised for wide participation. So now it is important to think about accessibility of these courses. Enter MOOCAP. This is a joint European project and the name stands for MOOCs for Accessibility Partnership. This project is to provide education on accessible design in ICT. MOOCAP will create free online courses that show how to “create accessible media and content, such as web sites, mobile apps and office documents”. The MOOCAP website itself is a good example of how to do things well. They also offer a wide range of specialised courses:

Accessible Documents

Inclusive teacing and learning environments
Accessible Gamification
Design Innovation: Inclusive approaches
Accessible Mobile Apps
Assistive Technologies
User Interface Personalisation
