Announcing the Teach Access Tutorial

Posted on Wednesday, 20 July 2016 by Sarah Horton

TPG and our peers at Teach Access are very excited to announce the Teach Access Tutorial. This tutorial provides a set of hands-on coding exercises and reference material for accessibility best practices, and provides basic training for developers and designers interested in building inclusive experiences.

Teach Access is a group of technology companies, higher education institutions, and advocacy organizations working together on making accessibility a core skill amongst students of computer science, engineering, design and related disciplines, as well as among IT professionals. With the release of this tutorial, Teach Access is addressing one of our key objectives—to build online learning tools that teach accessibility best practices and to make these tools freely available to individuals, companies and organizations. You can learn more about Teach Access at teachaccess.org.

So if you are new to accessibility, this tutorial’s for you. It is freely available on GitHub so that it can be shared widely and further enhanced by the community. Happy learning: teachaccess.github.io/tutorial.
