Meeting the Baseline

The UCL E-Connected Learning Baselinesuggests the following for Accessibility: 

  • 7.1 Provide accessible learning resources by ensuring:
    • Layout is clear, with good spacing, including text that isn’t cramped or dense.
    • Graphics have alternative text (for screen-readers).
    • Navigation is consistent between modules.
    • Fonts are large enough to read (minimum 10pt).
    • Coloured text has high contrast against backgrounds.
    • Links are descriptive (avoiding 'click here'). 
    • Resources provided are in accessible formats and 48 hours in advance of lectures where relevant/appropriate.
  • 7.2 Links open in the same window – so the student uses the browser back button. *If a new window is essential (e.g. to provide pop-up help) warn the students by labelling the link with '(this link will open in new window)'.
  • 7.3 Adhere to the UK Equality Act - If a student with a disability requests an accessible format of any resource, this must be provided, within reason. Read more at www.ucl.ac.uk/disability.
