About this course

This self-paced online course on ICT Accessibility: The Key to Inclusive Communication aims at developing a good understanding of all stakeholders in the field of ICT accessibility, in particular focusing on related policies, regulations, technology trends, and public procurement rules. This course has been developed as an immediate response to the outcomes of the World Telecommunication Development Conference 2017, in particular on the ITU Regional Initiative for Europe that called for building human capacities in the field of ICT accessibility. This course consists of three modules as follows:

Module 1: Enabling communication for all though ICT Accessibility

Module 2: ICT accessibility policy regulations and standards

Module 3: Achieving ICT accessibility through public procurement.

This course is open to all stakeholders. It is free and available in English only. The approximate time necessary for accomplishing all modules is eight hours.  The certificate will be issued upon conclusion of all three modules and based on successful completion of the testing phase for each module. The course would be considered completed once all three quizzes have been passed.
