This is an the fourth of four online AbilityNet sessions looking at digital accessibility, specifically how to understand the results of accessibility evaluations and testing results.

The new Web Accessibility regulations require Universities to conduct audits and testing across all their digital estates, form websites to learning environments. These tests can be carried out by external contractors or your own in-house teams (see Workshop 3 for how to do this yourself)

Although built around common standards such as WCAG2.1, many people find accessibility test results and audit reports difficult to understand. Automatically generated reports or expert audits can produce a list of issues that need prioritising. Organisations must also decide how these accessibility barriers are communicated through their accessibility statement and how they can remediate them in the future.

This session is aimed at anyone creating, managing or procuring digital content or systems. It will also be of value as an introductory session for developers and eLearning content creators looking to develop accessibility skills. While not compulsory, it is strongly recommended that attendees attend the session “Introduction to accessibility testing” if they have no prior knowledge of accessibility tests.

Teaching online isn't simply a matter of 'converting' face-to-face teaching. These introductory guides identify some differences between teaching in person and teaching online, and offer some ideas and examples of ways to make the most of each.

While we continue to live with disruption, there are opportunities to build on Cambridge's educational traditions to address the very distinctive challenges of teaching and studying during the pandemic.

These resources have been compiled by the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning and are available here.

The purpose of this course is to provide the additional content covered on the new CCNA 200-301 Exam. As learners transition from the previous version of the CCNA curriculum to the newer version, they can use this course to learn the new concepts. This course consists of numerous resources including text, graphics, interactive activities, Syntax Checker activities, Packet Tracer activities, labs, quizzes and exams that cover the new content.
