I think spanish is a cool language for every one to learn


Found a page on Accessify to examples of good looking accessible sites. Something i've wanted for a while now. [just in case you're interested: http://www.accessify.com/features/articles/good-lookers/ ]


Thanks for the reminder, I'd forgotten what a useful resource Sharon's got there!

Incidentally, do you go to the SIGs at all? I've generally not been able to get there - teaching, I'd hoped to go to one in Bangor a couple of years ago (blizzarded off), but did manage to get to Birmingham in November.


I'd love to but unfortunatly it isn't essential to my current role. I haven't been to any of them. The next one looks fantastic too:

"There will be a joint meeting of the CETIS Accessibility Group and Portfolio SIG on Friday 10th March 2006 at TechDis, York Science Park.

The full agenda is still to be confirmed, but it will centre around on-going work connecting e-portfolios with accessibility, in the contexts both of
e-portfolio usability and enhancing access to higher education.

The provisional agenda includes:

Presentation by TechDis - Alistair McNaught, TechDis

Social inclusion and e-portfolios – Anna Home, University of Bristol.

Anna will discuss 'widening participation' and 'social exclusion'. She will cover accessibility aspects of some e-portfolio projects, which seek to enhance access to HE for a range of different learners.

Demonstration of an ACCLIP Implementation – Fiona Henry, Loughborough College Loughborough College’s Personal Profile Project is one of the only institutions in the UK to implement part of the IMS ACCLIP (Accessibility for Learner Information Package) Specification. Fiona will give a demonstration of how the specification has been implemented for their electronic progress files. Further information is available from http://www.loucoll.ac.uk/projects/ppp1.asp.

The PETAL (Personal E-portfolios for Teaching And Learning) Project – Ellen Lessner, Abingdon and Witney College

Ellen will give an overview of the PETAL Project. Further information is available from http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=deletpetal.

The meeting will run from 10:00 to 16:00 (registration from 10am). As always, it’s free to attend, and lunch and refreshments will be provided."


Yes, I thought that one sounded good, but York's quite a way from Portsmouth, and in any case I have to convince the current 2nd years that day why they'd want to do my final year option (Educational Computing!)
