Dear WAI Interest Group,

We have extended the free online course:
      Introduction to Web Accessibility
      https://www.edx.org/course/web-accessibility-introduction

It is now open through 30 May 2020.

Extended Audit Time: Previously the free “audit” option was limited to 4 weeks.
Now (as of 8 April), the audit option gives you access to all of the content for as long as the course is open.
If you previously enrolled with the Audit option and the 4-week limit timed out, you can now get to the course content.

*We encourage you to tell others about the course and share the link to this blog post for more information*:

Dear WAI Interest Group,

A new online course has started and is available through April 2020:
      Introduction to Web Accessibility
      https://www.edx.org/course/web-accessibility-introduction

This course gives you a strong foundation in digital accessibility to help you make websites and apps work better for people with disabilities, meet international standards, and provide a better user experience for everyone. In addition to offering an introduction for people who are new to accessibility, this course helps people who already know about accessibility get additional perspectives.

The course is designed *for technical and non-technical* audiences.

Learn more about the course in the blog post:
      Free Online Course “Introduction to Web Accessibility”
      https://www.w3.org/blog/2019/12/free-online-course-introduction-to-web-accessibility/

That *updated blog post provides additional information on* the:
* free Audit option [updated]
* Verified Certificate option, including dates when it is available

edX info: For updated information on verification options and accessibility of the Verified Certificate process, see: edX Help Center Accessibility pages <https://support.edx.org/hc/en-us/sections/360007007533-Accessibility>.
