The ILT team is currently working on our content to ensure each resource is accessible for both the content and the navigability of the platform by September 2020.
We aim to create in-house content and systems to meet the accessibility standards and the content we create should be compatible with assistive technology.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
If you encounter accessibility issues with ILT platforms or content, please email ILT. We will respond to your request to provide the content in an accessible form within 3 working days.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility
- The University has an Inclusive Student Experience Group (ISEG) which has two key subgroups. One is the Disability Coordinators Group and the other is a group focusing on the institutional response to the accessibility regulations. At all meetings, the groups are considering ways in which University accessibility may be improved. Members of ILT sit on ISEG.
- Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) are required for new policies and services and ensure a focus on the range of people expected to access that material.
- An appropriate disability checker has been acquired when using our integrated learning environment, NILE and provides content in alternative formats.
- Training (synchronous and asynchronous) has been developed for all staff to ensure they are aware of the requirements and have the skills needed to update materials.
