original materials are available as Open Education Recourses on the MOOCAP
website https://moocap.gpii.eu/?page_id=839

FutureLearn Inclusive Learning and Teaching Environments Sept 3rd for three
weeks - for those working in Higher Education and interested in making
elearning accessible

"Explore the barriers experienced by disabled students and learn how to
overcome these barriers through inclusive practices."


FutureLearn Digital Accessibility Oct 8th for five weeks with 8 universities
discussing different aspects of digital technologies and accessibility from
