We have a new look which includes new features which we hope will improve the way you interact and use this website.
Accessible technologies and the education experience - Dr Scott Hollier
Accessible technologies and the education experience is a free webinar that will be hosted by ADCET in partnership with ATEND
Access to online content is vital to education, whether its ensuring that students with disabilities have the assistive technologies they need or ensuring that online learning systems are compatible with such technologies. Dr Scott Hollier from Media Access Australia will share his professional and personal experience using assistive technologies in popular mainstream products to demonstrate the way in which popular computing and mobile devices have evolved, the challenges likely to be faced in accessing online content. And practical ways to support both users and producers. When: Tuesday, May 19, 2015 (1:00pm - 2.00pm (Australian Eastern Daylight Time - AEDT)) Further information
