From 2 January 2015, our accessibility and inclusion function, and all member-facing teams including Jisc TechDis, were brought in house.
We continue to offer a range of advice, guidance and training on all aspects of accessibility and inclusion.
Current support available for Jisc members
- Our “accessibility snapshot” looks at the student experience in relation to an organisation’s website, prospectus, learning platform, e-book platforms and assistive technology
- Our dedicated accessibility and inclusion blog explores a wide range of contemporary accessibility themes
- Our accessibility and inclusion guides include disability-specific, technology-specific and role-related guidance
Our accessibility and inclusion subject specialists provide a range of services including online training, policy reviews, staff development in inclusive practice and support for steering groups.
Our subject specialists support and represent members regionally and nationally in a range of contexts such as working with library communities, publishers and aggregators, assistive technologists, learning technologists and awarding bodies.
Relationship manager support
A nominated relationship manager, backed by our team of subject specialists, will operate locally to you and provide you with a fully-managed relationship, ensuring that you benefit from our full offer.
For more information on accessibility and inclusion, or any other subject support, email email@example.com.
Where can I find original TechDis resources?
Many of the resources can now be found in the guides section of the Jisc website.
You can still access original TechDis content via the Wayback Machine.
This site has been replaced by the RNIB Bookshare. Jisc has played a major role in helping this service meet the needs of further and higher education learners.
