I really liked the length of the course, the practical content, and the level of understanding required to pass the tests and quizzes. I learned a whole lot, and liked that we had to install and use different checkers and auditing tools. I also really liked the youtube videos that show how people with disabilities use the internet - very illuminating!

The course is extremely thorough and covers a lot of information. It's well organized and it shows dedication and professionalism from the team that put it together. It's a real jewel. I could not have found a better place to get up to date on these topics. Moreover I've been collecting throughout the lessons a lot of documentation and tools that will be very useful in the future. Is an eye-opener.
