"Engaging and interesting course on the benefits and application of the inclusive design approach." Brenda, TAFE NSW

"Every digital designer should do this course - inclusive design should always be part of the design thinking." Bec, sixheads

"I really enjoyed the Inclusive Design course! Even though the training had to be done online because of the COVID-19 restrictions, I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything that would have been in the normal course. In fact, I retained more knowledge because the course content was split over four weeks of online training! The interactive activities that we had to do as part of this course allowed me to experience firsthand how a person living with a disability would interact and navigate through websites and mobile devices. I definitely have a greater understanding now of how to create designs that are accessible and inclusive for all." Isabel, Julia Farr Association

"Joshua was great and was very informative with presenting and helping me learn about inclusive design. It's amazing how much I didn't know prior to doing this training and I thought I already knew quite a bit. Thank you!" Patrick, icare

"This is a great course that covers a lot (a lot!) of information about different types of disabilities and assistive technologies, and the solutions and design patterns that are out there. It's heavy on theory and resources (with a great deal of discussion) but there's a bit of a practical element too. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to know more about what a disability is and how inclusive design benefits everyone." Pamela, Sydney Living Museums
