Summary

This article recaps what you have learned and offers links to further learning on UX and accessible design.

Well done! You’ve made it to the end of our two-week introductory course on UX and accessible design.

You’ve explored the contexts within which people have to think about and create new types of user interfaces. You’ve also begun to unpick the main features of accessible user experience design as you’ve explored different types of digital user experience design problems.

Hopefully, you’re now able to describe the key principles behind accessible user experience, and understand more about the stages and key features of an accessible design approach.

Through the articles and videos from some of the leading figures in the field, you have learned a little more about their own practice, their motivations for getting into this area, and their thinking on what it means to truly design with accessibility in mind.

Importantly, you’ve also taken part in discussions with your fellow learners. This has given you the opportunity to develop your own understanding of the issues at hand, and also engage with alternative ideas. We hope you’ve found that useful and inspiring.
