MOOCAP: Massive Open Online Courses for Accessibility Partnership
The School of Computing, D.I.T. is currently an active partner in the MOOCAP project. MOOCAP is a European Project whose name stands for “MOOCs for Accessibility Partnership”. The goal of the project is to provide education on accessible design in ICT.
We will create free online courses that teach you how to create accessible media and content, such as web sites, mobile apps and office documents. In addition, you can learn about how to design products and systems for daily living in order to make them accessible to, understandable by and usable for a wide range of people. We will provide both an introductory course and a few specialised courses. The introductory course will be hosted on a European MOOC platform.
MOOCAP has eight partners from across Europe:
- Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus
- HdM Stuttgart
- University of Southampton
- Université Paris 8 Vincennes Saint-Denis
- Dublin Institute of Technology
- Technische Universität Dresden
- Johannes Kepler Universität Linz
- Πανεπιστ¿μιο Αιγα¿ου (University of the Aegean)
Further information about the project can be found on the MOOCAP website
