Subject: 2 online courses on accessible web design by EASI Oct. 29----


Two online courses on designing web sites for accessibility by users
with
disabilities provided by EASI both begin October 29 and run for a month.
Beginner Barrier-free Web Design and Advanced Barrier-free Web Design.
Registration and syllabus are available from the main course page
http://easi.cc/workshop.htm

EASI has delivered online courses for a decade to over 5000 people.
Both
courses are based on the new Federal Access Board's Section 508
standards
and the long-established Web Accessibility Guidelines.  Both courses
make
extensive use of multimedia to enhance and clarify the lessons.  The
syllabi have links to webcast interviews with Doug Wakefield from the
Access Board and Judy Brewer from the Web Accessibility Initiative.
Both
courses can be used to earn continuing education units, and both courses
are also part of the Certificate in Accessible Information Technology.
