[Note: Sorry for cross-posting to APA and EO mailing lists. The reason is
that the following information is potentially of interest to both working
groups.]

 

The MOOC Accessibility Partnership <http://gpii.eu/moocap/>  was an
EU-funded project running from Sep 2014 - Aug 2017.  We are currently
wrapping up the results for public dissemination.

 

The main results are (1) publicly available online courses, (2) a set of
a-day-in-the-life-stories featuring fictitious persons with disabilities,
and (3) Open Educational Resources (OERs) for free use.
