If you are considering taking on a new web project I would say that you should definitely consider accessibility. Not just because it is the right thing to do and you want to avoid getting into trouble over compliance issues. It’s really about better engaging all people, and particularly in government, we have an onus to do that—you can really help and empower people. Centre for Inclusive Design are experts in accessibility and we really benefitted from working with the team.

I was particularly impressed with how Media Access Australia took a highly collaborative approach to its working relationship with AER and how it took the time to fully understand our needs, our pain points and our desired outcome.

It has indeed been a great course. It’s been really good to have clear structure and direction given to Web Accessibility. There is so much information available on the web, it’s often hard to know where to start, what’s important, and what’s not. This course has delivered the information in a manageable way – and certainly given me some great foundations to use from here on out. Definitely worthwhile.

Centre for Inclusive Design was well known to us already as the major organisation in Australia doing work around digital accessibility. They are involved with the global web accessibility standards body, the W3C, so were the obvious organisation to invite to consult with us and help develop a plan for to meet our inclusion and access goals.
As the course was completely online-based, backed by the University of South Australia (who has a very good reputation for their commitment to web accessibility) and just six weeks in length meant that I did not have to sacrifice my work, family or other study commitments to participate.
The fact that I could do it all online was also attractive — I work full time, and would have found it difficult to juggle commitments, let alone relocate to Adelaide to do it. I’m not aware of any other course offering of this calibre; Centre for Inclusive Design has been on my watch list for a while and I respect their work, and I’d seen a positive review from a contact who knows their stuff.
