First CETIS-TechDis Accessibility SIG Partnership Meeting
You are cordially invited to attend the first CETIS-TechDis Accessibility Special Interest Group (SIG) Partnership Meeting. The aim of this meeting is to introduce the new IMS Accessibility Guidelines (version 1.0) and to give examples of their use.
The agenda will include:
1. A demonstration by Can Studios Limited of their learning software which has implemented the IMS Specifications.
2. An overview of the new IMS Accessibility Guidelines and examples of their use.
3. A presentation by the University of Salford.
4. A guided discussion session.
The meeting will take place between 10.30am and 3.45pm on Tuesday 22nd October
2002 at the University of Salford in Manchester. Location details can be found at www.salford.ac.uk/travel.
Accessibility issues are of importance to all those involved in developing learning technology or creating content for it. The SIG focuses on creation and implementation (i.e. on content authors and on developers) rather than on the users themselves and is open to anyone interested in interoperability standards and accessibility.
There will be no charge for attending the Partnership Meeting and lunch will be provided. If you would like to attend, please register on the registration page. Please note that space is limited to 50 people.
