Virtual AC

As the PACES Project consortiums live in connected society one of the most important goals of WP 2, Implementation and Promotion of Accessibility Centres, is to make content about accessibility centers available on different levels and channels, not only at the partnered universities and faculties but also all across the countries on web sites, as well as on social media (which is part of another WP). Special sections of websites in each partnered country (One partner per country) – Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT) in Egypt and Université Abdelmalek Essaâdi (UAE) in Morocco has been planned as one of sustainability effects of the project.

The implementation of information about the project and accessibility, Virtual Accessibility Centres, virtual computer tools, such as videoconferencing systems, adapted to the hearing and visually impaired, and web based environments is to be carried out. It is also possible to enable through those websites’ accessibility of electronic materials for students with disabilities as well as help of tools for creating accessible PDFs and e-learning materials.

The aim of Virtual Accessibility Centres is prepared with long term goal to enable through existing or new web servers access to information and e-learning materials for students with disabilities (SwD). The accessibility centre and the accompanying website was supposed to be used as an example of what kind of content on the web site and services should accessibility centre have.

All of these information Virtual Accessibility Centres will be posted in PACES Project Website by November 2019.
