Starting today, the MOOCAP project will be publishing open educational resources (OERs) on digital accessibility. Open educational resources are freely available documents, presentations, videos and other materials for teaching or learning that are published under an open licence (such as Creative Commons). The MOOCAP project’s open educational resources will be available under the CC-BY 4.0 licence, which allows a very liberal use of the materials. The resources come from the content that MOOCAP has been developing for its MOOC on digital accessibility.
The first OER we are announcing is an introduction to digital accessibility. It covers questions such as: What is accessibility? How does it relate to inclusive design (or universal design)? Whom does it benefit?
We will share our OERs on our Google Drive. What Is Digital Accessibility? is available in the Microsoft DOCX format.
