In 2009 JISC TechDis piloted their Online Accessibility Self Evaluation Service (OASES). The pilot model of delivery involved guided online sessions. The service has now been revised so that evaluations are self guided and can be done at any time.
OASES is based around the JISC TechDis maturity model of inclusive practice and there are evaluations tailored to key role groups in the FE and Skills sector:
- Library specialists
- Marketing specialists
- IT / Network specialists
- Disability Officers and Additional Learning Support specialists
- Staff Developers and Learning Technologists
- Senior Managers
The evaluations are closely tied to the relevant JISC TechDis resources on accessibility and inclusion. Anonymised summary results of evaluations are also available.
OASES is an invaluable tool for anyone wanting to evaluate the accessibility practice of their service.
