Celebrate Accessibility Awareness with Learning Labs
Throughout April and May 2019, Learning Labs will be talking about accessibility.
We’ll be sharing thought-leading ideas from the world of accessible learning, as well as launching new Labs on accessibility software and releasing updates on our portal to improve our own accessibility.
We want to generate greater awareness of accessible e-learning in higher education and the workplace, and we hope you will join us on our mission.
As part of our campaign you can expect new Lab suites to support accessibility awareness and a free webinar series, led by experts in accessibility.

Why is accessibility important in e-learning?
Accessibility in e-learning is not about disability, it is about making learning content inclusive for everybody. When we think about accessibility, we think about creating something that everyone could use, which often produces a far better-quality learning experience for all, regardless of individual needs. Creating truly inclusive learning is the key to removing barriers to learning and opening up opportunities for careers and improved quality of life for all.
Over the next couple of months, we will explore the theme of accessibility in e-learning, and hopefully spark debate and share a few good ideas.
