We All Make Digital Information Accessible
Programme: Erasmus+ KA202 VET
Digital accessibility in Europe is now in the spotlight after the approval in 2016 of the EU directive 2016/2102. Traditionally, ICT users think that digital accessibility is only a task for ICT professionals when designing and implementing websites and mobile apps. They also think this is something for very specific people, mainly those with disabilities.
WAMDIA changes the mindset of traditional ICT users. The fact is that everybody can contribute to accessibility of digital information by ensuring that common files that one can create are accessible: word processor, presentations or pdf files are good examples. Even more, this aspect of accessibility is key for the daily activity: e.g. the best accessible website is useless if only a single uploaded file is not accessible.
WAMDIA enables general ICT users to make digital information accessible by learning basic techniques which everybody with basic digital skills is able to apply in their daily life. WAMDIA will target many types of general users who are not ICT experts: public employees, teachers, and students in non-ICT programs in VET centres, SME managers and employees and in general any ICT user.

Programme: DG-CONNECT’s program “Preparatory Action: Open knowledge technologies: mapping and validating knowledge”
Number: LC – 00822001
The goal of SkillsMatch is to develop assessment and learning technology in order to help users to adapt their skill assets to the demanded labour market skills.
The solution will integrate and improve the development of Non-Cognitive Skills (NC), personality traits or motivations. During the project, partners will create a technological platform for assessing and evaluating such skills, as well as for recommending training opportunities for bridging the gap between their skills profile and the one recommended for their target jobs.
SkillsMatch platform will offer users a self-assessment NC tool showing strong and week points in relation to what is recommended for specific occupations, a personalized training itinerary including Open Education Resources (OER) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and a portfolio linked to open badges which will provide recognition of the new skills.
