TOP REVIEWS FROM AN INTRODUCTION TO ACCESSIBILITY AND INCLUSIVE DESIGN
I learned SO much! Still considering my path in terms of a career but I know that whatever I do, I will carry what I learned with me and put it to good use! Thank you:)
This course gives me basic knowledge on accessibility that I need for my work ahead. I have so much respect on people at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign who have contirbuted to this course.
Not as much directly related to software design as I expected, but then again design is not necessarily software design.
Valuable knowledge about how accessibility and inclusive design is beneficial for all. Highly recommend if going into field of technology and design.
