Is the course accessible to persons with disabilities?

We want all participants in our courses to enjoy a great learning experience and we strive to always improve accessibility. Each week of the course includes one or two video lectures with accompanying transcripts, podcasts and reading materials. The texts are in PDF format, work at low bandwidths, are printable and can be zoomed to the desired size. Some readings may include pages from accessible websites. If lectures include diagrams, charts, or images they’ll have a text description. Alternatively, the same information may also be presented in a table or a series of lists. This makes all of them accessible to those who use assistive technology software such as screen readers. Likewise, weekly discussions and module quizzes can be completed through our platform which is accessible, for example, to people who use speech input, keyboard accessible controls or text to speech tools. Overall, the platform we use for our course is substantially conformant with Level A and Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0. For more details please visit

Structure and content

Is there a schedule for the course or is it self-directed?

The course is self-paced so participants can study in their own time. However, to enhance peer learning, interactive participation and self-assessment, weekly topics and discussions as well as module quizzes are proposed at set dates. In any case, they are all open until the end of the course to facilitate access and completion at any preferred time. For a detailed description of the schedule visit our website at
