    Lots of excellent content that certainly made me think about some important issues. I think this speaks highly of the course developers' curation and subject-matter expertise. Some of the quiz questions felt a bit pedantic, but over all, the assessments were fine. My biggest issue was with the delivery platform. Frankly, I found the default discussion tool did not actually facilitate any meaningful discussion.

    The course is quite detailed about all areas related to dealing with Web Accessibility, sometimes it feels a bit text heavy.
    The course provides tests, challenges, activities and access to many resources.
    There is a companion course for Web Developers about the more technical aspects that I plan on taking.

    Logical and practical course designed to help companies learn about legislation behind digital accessibility; create a company policy on accessibility; establish accessibility committee and guidelines. Chock full of resources, links, articles for future reference.

    Good course and well written with plenty of helpful resources. The only issue was that the course required more time than was stated.
