CMPT 480 / 840 Accessible Computing

Assignments


Students are required to complete a set of Accessibility Demonstration Exercises (ADEs) to acquaint themselves with various accessibility issues.

All assignments come from the set of USERLab Accessibility Demonstration Exercises found at http://userlab.usask.ca/ade/

Where possible, the ADEs are maximally accessible or  alternate accessible versions are provided. Where an accessible version is not available, an alternate assignment will be provided by the instructor.

Students are required to submit a short report (by e-mailing it to the instructor carter @ cs dot usask dot ca)  before 12 noon on the due date. Details of what to hand in are provided in the "What to Hand-in" section of each assignment.

The subject of the e-mail for assignments  should be "480 Assignment xx - your name", where week xx is the assignment number and where you insert your own name in the subject line. 

Assignments are worth 20% of your mark in the course.
