MOOCAP is a European project whose name stands for “MOOCs for Accessibility Partnership”. The goal of the project is to provide education on accessible design in ICT.
We will create free online courses that teach you how to create accessible media and content, such as web sites, mobile apps and office documents. In addition, you can learn about how to design products and systems for daily living in order to make them accessible to, understandable by and usable for a wide range of people. We will provide both an introductory course and a few specialised courses.
The introductory course is hosted on FutureLearn, and has had two runs so far (from 17 October till 20 November 2016, and from 6 February till 12 March 2017). The next upcoming course is Accessible Web, which starts on 17 July 2017.
MOOCAP has eight partners from across Europe:
- Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus
- HdM Stuttgart
- University of Southampton
- Université Paris 8 Vincennes Saint-Denis
- Dublin Institute of Technology
- Technische Universität Dresden
- Johannes Kepler Universität Linz
- Πανεπιστήμιο Αιγαίου (University of the Aegean)
