With inclusion for people of all abilities a hot topic that is continuing to rise in prominence, it’s no surprise that one university-accredited online course on web accessibility is continuing to attract students of all ages who want to make the web more inclusive, and improve their skill levels and career prospects at the same time.
Working with Media Access Australia (World Wide Web Consortium – W3C – Member) the University of South Australia has developed Australia’s only university-accredited web accessibility certificate for web professionals to help address the digital divide that is preventing those with a disability from accessing the full potential of the internet.
The ground-breaking 2012 ‘SociAbility’ review into social media for those with a disability has had a much anticipated update. The Media Access Australia website now includes important new information on the varying accessibility challenges and practical fixes across all popular social channels. Project leader Dr Scott Hollier believes that it is destined to be the go-to resource on social media for people with a disability and those who provide care, support and advice.
