ECS Intranet:
MOOCs for Accessibility Partnership (MOOCAP)

A pan-european Erasmus+ project aiming to provide an online course authored by accessibility experts in nine universities. The introductory MOOC aims to highlight the barriers experienced by those who have a range of sensory, physical and cognitive disabilities and impairments when accessing online content or some general technologies and how strategies can be introduced to provide digital accessibility. The five week programme will be introduced with strategies being presented as ‘steps’ through the process. The steps will cover access to mobile and web services, online multimedia such as videos etc., documentation and technology used in daily living such as Self -Service Terminals (e.g. cash machines), smart homes and cities. Every step of the course will be authored by one group within the partnership and reviewed by another before receiving its final evaluation from the hosting MOOC platform partnership.
