Site of the Month winner, March 2006: Making your teaching inclusive
Site of the Month winner, March 2006: Making your teaching inclusive is a site that I built for The Open University. Now that’s pretty cool!
Why so cool? Well it was voted for by members of the Guild of Accessible webdesigners – an international guild no less. This commands some respect since it’s been assessed for it’s accessibleness to people with different accessible needs. The site itself deals with the subject of inclusive teaching – making your lectures, seminars and field trips accessible to all regardless of disability.
It was a long old project and not without its difficulties. The site itself is very basic looking so it’s a testament to the quality of the content written by subject experts and instructional designers that it gets this praise. It has a number of video clips that add a human face to the disabilities discussed – yes they’re all real people! These clips really lift the site and make it a little above the norm of verbose text you’d expect to find. So well done all involved – it’s a quality product.
