By completing this free course, hopefully you are now better able to create accessible eLearning materials. You should be more aware of the range of needs of disabled students, and how they use technology and interact with eLearning materials.

You should have practiced working with your own materials and our created scenarios on accessibility to establish processes that will slot into your own workflow, and that you can practice, develop and build upon in your own context.

Accessibility and eLearning are both ever-changing fields. Technologies come, technologies go, but learners will always need access to our learning materials. Hopefully this course has helped to ensure that those students who have the good fortune to interact with your eLearning materials will have a more accessible, usable learning experience.
