Who benefits from this course?
Did you know that roughly 1 in 7 people have a long-term disability? To help some of these people use the web, certain features and implementations need to be in place on websites.
By taking on the responsibility to up your website accessibility game, you will not only reach more visitors thanks to a more inclusive website design and set-up, but you'll also set yourself apart in the market.
If you're handing public-sector websites (or want to), some governments even require a certain level of website accessibility - this course will help you get started on the topic!
"The course appeals to developers, project managers, product owners. There is code which will appeal to developers. I think Project Managers and Product Owners can benefit from the knowledge of Inclusive Design, why it is important and why it should always be considered right from the beginning rather than just a nice-to-have"
