Ally: Achieving 90% accessibility (May 1)
In December, January and February, the DL team met with all 9 programme teams to review the top 5 document accessibility errors on Moodle. Since then, we’ve seen remarkable progress in every programme, but we’d like to highlight three who’ve seen the greatest improvement in their Moodle site accessibility scores.
|Film and Television |
|Media and Communications |
|Graphic Design Communication |
If you’d like to know how to raise your own accessibility scores, checkout out our additional resources or email email@example.com to arrange a time with a member of our team to work collaboratively on enhancing your Moodle site accessibility scores.
Moodle Upgrade dates (July 4-5)
Moodle will be unavailable from July 4th to 5th during the upgrade from Moodle 3.9 to Moodle 4.1.
The upgrade will have some superficial effects on Moodle’s user interface, but basic functions will otherwise remain the same. If these dates conflict with submissions, assessment, or other student work please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
