At HKU: Resources for creating accessible virtual teaching and learning

Funded by the UGC Special Grant for Strategic Development of virtual teaching and learning, the Faculty of Education had launched the “Virtual Learning Accessibility Toolkit” and the “#IDEALeaders Self-learning Video Series” to facilitate the adoption of accessible virtual teaching and learning materials.


The “Virtual Learning Accessibility Toolkit” is a site of extensive resources to improve virtual teaching and learning, complete with guidelines, accessible PowerPoint and course outline templates, and lists of other available resources at and beyond HKU.
