I paid full amount and finished my assignment before time to earn the certificate but the course does not allow me to earn the certificate before a certain date. This is very unreasonable of the university and coursera. I have submitted all my assignments and finished my materials but I have to wait until 2 weeks to get the certificate. This is not how online learning works. Either refund my money or send me the certificate ASAP.

Very detailed and comprehensive course that not only covers technology and accessibility for online teaching but also background information on the law in regards to accessibility and the differences in types of disabilities that affect learning. Also very helpful techniques that can be integrated into teaching as a way of creating a course and content using principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Activities were challenging but 100% applicable to teaching and working environments to improve the accessibility of electronic communication.

Video captioning and creating accessible documents using Word, PowerPoint and Adobe PDFs is also covered in the course.

Best course to go for. Only problem I had faced with the peer review. I got failed four times for no reason. People are not co-operative. But finally made it!

Its a brilliant course, i enjoyed thoroughly. The course material was planned in an organised way, best part is the interviews of the people who serving assistive technology and as well as using assitive technology in their lifestyle. "Preach what you do" is an apt example for University of Illinois, its a great institute , best example in accomodating assistive technology and providing inclusive education to all.

I am very thanful to REVA university for giving this opportunity to enroll in courseera and choose my favourite topic to persue.

I wish Course era to flourish in greater heights providing opportunities to more students and people looking forward to persue education as important tool in serving people.

with best regards

A really good course to cover some of the essentials in accessibility. I would say the focus is mainly on the digital aspects of accessibility, but the course also provides a good overview of other facets of accessibility as well, such as legislation, the various types of disabilities and potential opportunities in the field.

The videos are too long. I think it is better to divide them into shorter parts. I feel the lack of information on architectural accessability

This course gave me a great insight on how do people deal with their disabilities and what are the different types of assistive technology they use to get access to everything in life. The assignments, especially the one to make accessible word document and power point presentation were very practical and helpful. Thank you Coursera and University of Illinois for teaching this course online. Thank you to Manipal Academy of Higher Education for giving me this opportunity to enroll in this course.

I received a new job offer after taking this course. The materials helped me to learn about becoming formally trained and certified in ensuring ADA accessibility for our university's health sciences school. I printed out all of the materials and am now well on my way towards a upgrading my career and working in an area of education that is truly meaningful and impactful on our students' learning experiences. What could be better than that?

I liked this training better than the one for my college in that the video's helped me follow along much easier. The Accessbility training course my college required was very heavy in text and I don't do well with that for some reason. I actually know how to format my documents now after 2 decades! Thank you!

A wonderful course as a fairly comprehensive introduction to inclusive design. It inspires you to learn more about this field and create content for all kinds of people. It also helps to open your mind and learn about new experiences and how to understand the world despite the limitations.

Well organised content and great learning experience with appropriate knowledge checks!! Now onwards I care about accessibility and inclusive design concepts to make sure that any content I create is accessible. I will do my best to create awareness among people about these concepts.

Coursera has teamed up with Universities to bring some of the best certifications especially for online users. It was a great experience learning about Universal Design. I would recommend this course for those who are just starting their journey to support Accessibility.

Great initiation for an interesting subject. Content is very much valuable and helpful to understand the basic facts of Inclusive design. Also the course itself directs the higher levels of the same subject. Recommended.
