Legislation at national and international levels increasingly mandate conformance with such guidelines. However large scale surveys have demonstrated the failure of such approaches to produce any significant impact.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue71/kelly-et-al" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue71 feature article brian kelly david sloan dominik lukes ea draffan jonathan hassell sarah lewthwaite iso kings college london london metropolitan university oracle ukoln university of bath university of dundee university of southampton w3c web accessibility initiative accessibility agile development blog browser bs8878 cookie data doi e-learning ead framework ict mobile research responsive design social networks software standardisation standards usability video wcag web resources web services web standards youtube Mon, 08 Jul 2013 18:13:42 +0000 lisrw 2475 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk 'Does He Take Sugar?': The Risks of Standardising Easy-to-read Language http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue70/kelly-et-al <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue70/kelly-et-al#author1">Brian Kelly</a>, <a href="/issue70/kelly-et-al#author2">Dominik LukeŇ°</a> and <a href="/issue70/kelly-et-al#author3">Alistair McNaught</a> highlight the risks of attempting to standardise easy-to-read language for online resources.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The idea that if we could only improve how we communicate, there would be less misunderstanding among people is as old as the hills. Historically, this notion has been expressed through things like school reform, spelling reform, publication of communication manuals, etc. The most radical expression of the desire for better understanding is the invention of a whole new artificial language with the intention of providing a universal language for humanity.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue70/kelly-et-al" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue70 feature article alistair mcnaught brian kelly dominik lukes alt alt-c bbc google jisc jisc techdis rdwg ukoln university of bath w3c web accessibility initiative accessibility algorithm blog bs8878 dissemination doi e-learning framework higher education internet explorer multimedia operating system research search technology software standards vocabularies wcag web 2.0 web resources Sat, 15 Dec 2012 15:18:25 +0000 lisrw 2431 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Towards a Pragmatic Framework for Accessible E-Learning http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue44/phipps <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue44/phipps#author1">Lawrie Phipps</a>, <a href="/issue44/phipps#author2">Neil Witt</a> and <a href="/issue44/phipps#author3">Brian Kelly</a> while recognising the importance of accessibility in e-learning resources, query the universal applicability of the Web Accessibility Initiative's guidelines and describe a pragmatic framework which provides a broader context for their use.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="From_Well_Meaning_Guideline_to_Stealth_Standard">From Well Meaning Guideline to Stealth Standard</h2> <p>Access to learning for all students is a value that is hard to dispute for anyone working in the education sector. Within the areas of education that are concerned with supporting disabled students, it has almost become dogma that in order to provide this 'universal access' we must have standards in design that can accommodate all (disabled) learner needs.

Other tracks at the conference cover areas such as cultural resources, e-learning, accessibility, etc. In addition W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium) gives a series of presentations which describe many of the new Web standards being developed.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue36/web-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue36 regular column brian kelly cerlim manchester metropolitan university ukoln university of bath university of southampton w3c web accessibility initiative accessibility avi browser copyright css data dom dtd e-learning foaf higher education html mathml metadata rae rdf research semantic web smil standards stylesheet svg url video visualisation vocabularies wcag web app web browser web development web services web standards xhtml xml Tue, 29 Jul 2003 23:00:00 +0000 editor 975 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Web Focus: Report on the Fifth Institutional Web Management Workshop http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue29/web-focus <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue29/web-focus#author1">Brian Kelly</a>, UK Web Focus, reports on the IWMW event in his regular column.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The fifth Institutional Web Management Workshop was held at Queen's University Belfast on 25-27&nbsp;June 2001. This year's workshop, which had the theme "Organising Chaos", was the largest to date with 150 delegates. It was also the longest workshop, lasting from Monday morning until Wednesday lunchtime. The extra half-day compared with the previous three workshops allowed us to run a full day of interactive parallel sessions.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue29/web-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue29 tooled up brian kelly becta ilrt jisc kings college london knowledge media institute open university queens university belfast sheffield hallam university ukoln university college cork university of bath university of bristol university of cambridge university of east anglia university of glasgow university of kent university of manchester university of salford university of southampton university of strathclyde university of ulster iwmw content management database e-business e-government e-learning infrastructure personalisation search technology url usability web development web services xml xslt Tue, 02 Oct 2001 23:00:00 +0000 editor 830 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Web Focus: Hot News From WWW10 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue28/web-focus <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue28/web-focus#author1">Brian Kelly</a> reports on the Tenth International World Wide Web Conference, held in Hong Kong on 1-5 May 2001.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Previous Web Focus articles have provided trip reports on the International World Wide Web conferences <a href="#ref-01">[1]</a> <a href="#ref-02">[2]</a> <a href="#ref-03">[3]</a> and <a href="#ref-04">[4]</a>.
