Welcome to Web2Access

This resource aims to help those making decisions about their use of freely available 'Web 2.0' interactive and collaborate e-learning tools.

Teaching and Learning

Each Web 2.0 site can be searched or browsed by a specific Activity or it's performance in our usability/accessibility checks. If you are involved in teaching and learning and want to supplement or make more use of Web 2.0 services in your e-learning activities, this section may be useful to you.

Our Tests

The ratings provided are subjective, although they are based on the use of manual and automatic checks as discussed on the Test pages. The ability to browse by Disability is also based on the checks they passed.

Further Links and Resources are provided with examples of how some Web 2.0 sites can be used within a website, such as Web2Access.

About the Project

Web2Access was initially a JISC-funded project, with support from JISC TechDis. Subsequently the project received assistance from the University of Southampton Student Centredness Fund

The evaluation work is undertaken by the ECS Accessibility Team, as members of the Web and Internet Science Research Group at the University of Southampton. We are a group of researchers and developers with considerable experience in the field of digital technologies in relation to personalisation, disability, assistive technology, elearning, mobile and Web 2.0 services.
