Students’ Newspaper on the Web

As part of ongoing provision of course material for print-disabled students, both on CD-ROM and the Internet, METg member Chris Valentine has been converting the OU Students’ Newspaper “Sesame” for Web presentation.

In a press announcement from the editor: “Sesame can now be read by print-disabled students linked up to the Web at http://met.open.ac.uk/sesame/. The new service was initiated by Chris Valentine of the OU’s Multi Media Enabling Technologies Group. “Thanks for helping make this happen Chris,” said Sesame’s editor Margaret Salter. “I am delighted that people unable to pick up and turn the pages of Sesame can now enjoy keeping up with University news.”
