Professional learning designers should, of course, model good practice when designing learning activities, and an important part of that is ensuring that the resources and activities are fully accessible by all students - or that an equivalent 'reasonable adjustment' is available. Having looked though week 1, I'm wondering how visually impaired students would access this - for example the MindMeister mindmap or the Pearltrees resources?
On a higher level, the use of iFrames to embed all this content will also play havoc with screen readers.
Would anyone from the course design team like to comment on the accessibility of the course?
At the same time, as a strongly visual learner with compensated visual impairment (glasses) I really like the use of visual inoformation systems such as the two mentioned above, and appreciate that the course team are trying to make their approach innovative and exciting...

We are planning to do some accessibility testing, but haven't done so yet. However, following your comment I specifically asked for the iFrames to be tested on a screenreader, and it looks like there's no problem there.
