Accessibility & Inclusion
Used appropriately, digital technologies can significantly improve access to, and accessibility of, all aspects of education, from admission and enrolment, through library and IT provision, to teaching, learning and assessment.
JISC is committed to achieving greater accessibility and inclusion for all students and staff, by stimulating innovation and providing expert advice and guidance on enhancing accessibility and inclusion through technology. We achieve this through the JISC TechDis advisory service, and by funding projects that explore ways of using both mainstream and assistive technologies to more effectively meet the needs of all learners.
