Since it’s launch last year, AccessApps has blossomed and won a number of awards. AccessApps won the Scottish Open Source Award for Excellence in Education, 2008 and best in class award for Best Accessibility Solution at the IMS Global Learning Impact Conference in Barcelona, May 2009. AccessApps has now gone even further by receiving a highly commended award from the Guardian newspaper for its Rewarding Excellence in Public Sector IT Awards.
For those not familiar with AccessApps and its now full suit of applications – EduApps, the team at RSC North East Scotland have produced a ‘Common Craft’ style video.
On a personal level AccessApps has provided access to learning providers that I had previously not been in contact with. I’ve done staff development for learning support staff and only a week or so ago was doing training for the inclusive learning team at Preston College. What a creative bunch they were with some excellent versions of ‘Let it Be’ and ‘My favourite things’ amongst the work done using Audacity. On a more flippant note – AccessApps has provided more free lunches than any bit of kit in the last 3 years! So thanks Craig and the chaps at NE Scotland and keep up the good work!
