Can you break down the barriers to learning, teaching and research?

Do you have an idea for how technology can support access and inclusion for the UK’s learners, staff and researchers?

Students using a PC
JISC are running a competition ‘Accessible by Design‘, inviting you to pitch ideas which could overcome accessibility issues and improve the experience for learners and researchers.

The winning idea receives £5000 in funding and support from JISC to turn concept into a reality. Video pitches must be submitted via the JISC Elevator page before 26th October.

Recent ideas include a more accessible version of YouTube and an ebook to capture the digital stories of students with Specific Learning Difficulties. For further inspiration have a look at some of the ideas which have been submitted to recent JISC Elevator projects.

Information about the competition can be found on the pages below:

If you would like any help submitting an idea contact the Innovation Group and we’d be happy to help.
