Web Accessibility
In this course you’ll get hands-on experience making web applications accessible. You’ll understand when and why users need accessibility. Then you’ll dive into the “how”: making a page work properly with screen readers, and managing input focus (e.g. the highlight you see when tabbing through a form.) You’ll understand what “semantics” and “semantic markup” mean for web pages and add ARIA markup to enable navigating the interface with a range of assistive devices. Finally, you’ll learn styling techniques that help users with partial vision navigate your pages easily and reliably. This course is also featured in our Senior Web Developer Nanodegree program. Why Take This Course? Not every user approaches their applications with the same abilities. Whether it’s age, vision concerns, limited hearing, a broken arm, or other limitations, everybody deserves access to their apps. This course dives into the why and how of making web applications accessible. As a bonus, accessible sites also tend to be more usable for everybody! Prerequisites and Requirements Students should know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. What Will I Learn? Project 3: Restaurant Reviewer You will develop a restaurant review application with a focus on accessibility. You will remotely access JSON files containing restaurant information (including name, a photograph, address, cuisine type and operating hours) as well as JSON files containing review information for each restaurant (name of reviewer, date of review, 5-star rating and comments). The reviews application must include an application header, and a menu providing multiple ways to filter the restaurants (by cuisine, by location, etc). When viewing a specific restaurant, current reviews must be displayed along with a form for the user to submit their own review. Syllabus Lesson 1: Overview In this lesson you’ll learn why accessibility matters, and who it affects. You’ll also get a first look at the web accessibility guidelines (WAI – Web Accessibility Initiative), understand what “POUR” means for accessibility, and locate checklists to help make your own sites accessible. Lesson 2: Focus In this lesson you’ll learn how to make a page usable for anyone navigating with the keyboard. This starts with an introduction to the concept of focus (the element on the page to which keyboard events will be targeted), how to make elements focusable and when, and the order in which focusable elements will be traversed when exploring the page with the keyboard. You’ll also learn how to manage focus in forms, in custom components, pop-ups, and off-screen content. Lesson 3: Semantics Basics In this lesson you’ll build on keyboard navigation to make a page work for people who are unable to use a standard user interface, including users who can't see the screen. This requires ensuring assistive technology (such as screen readers) has sufficient information to present an alternative UI. You’ll use a screen reader to try out ordinary form elements and add markup to make them work even better. You’ll understand the accessibility tree the browser constructs from the DOM. Finally, you’ll learn how to built-in HTML features to ensure the accessibility tree accurately reflects the visual UI. Lesson 4: Semantics Extras In this lesson, you’ll dive deeper into the screen-reader experience to add hyper-fast navigation. You’ll learn how to arrange headings and label links so screen reader users can fly through your pages! You’ll also learn how to call out “landmarks” into your page to speed up navigation even more. (As a bonus, this “semantic markup” also makes your markup more readable!) Lesson 5: Semantics - ARIA In this lesson, you’ll move beyond the native elements of HTML into building custom controls and interactions. Of course you want these to be accessible, and that’s where ARIA comes in – Accessible Rich Internet Applications. You’ll learn how to add attributes to your custom interactions to make them as accessible as native elements. You’ll also learn how to manage these attributes from Javascript as the user interacts with your page. Lesson 6: Style In this lesson, you’ll learn the third pillar of Accessibility (after Focus and Semantics): Styling. Your page’s styles need to support highlighting the focus, indicating ARIA states, being zoomed in or out, and viewed by people with limited color or contrast vision. You’ll learn how to audit your page with the Chrome Accessibility Tools and correct any styling issues that pop up, as well as designing with accessibility in mind.

National Research Tomsk State University
Курс «Читаем русскую классику вместе. М. Булгаков "Мастер и Маргарита"» нацелен на овладение в совместной деятельности (преподаватель-студент) универсальной поэтапной моделью работы с художественным текстом, которая может быть использована как основа для формирования навыков смыслового чтения художественного произведения. Подобные навыки значимы как в реальной коммуникации, так и в учебной деятельности (на родном и иностранном языке). Произведение М. Булгакова "Мастер и Маргарита", выбранное для формирования навыков смыслового чтения, составляет золотой фонд мировой художественной культуры. В этом курсе слушатели научатся: 1. анализировать художественное произведение с точки зрения коммуникативного замысла автора; 2. комментировать текст с точки зрения полученного коммуникативного задания; 3. интерпретировать художественный текст, выделяя содержательные и языковые единицы, являющиеся основой развития писательской мысли; 4. прогнозировать содержание текста на основе смыслового анализа; 5. конструировать собственное высказывание; 6. рефлексировать по поводу образов, образных средств, коммуникативного замысла писателя; 7. оценивать собственное речевое произведение, созданное как результат рефлексии по поводу текста. Требования к уровню подготовки слушателей: - знание базового курса русской литературы в объеме средней школы (для российских участников); - владение русским языком на уровне B2 – C2 (для иностранных обучающихся), - прочитанный роман М.А. Булгакова "Мастер и Маргарита" (для иностранных обучающихся возможно прочтение на родном языке). The ideal outcome from the course is to master by means of teacher-student cooperation a universal model of work with literary text that may be used as a basis of purposeful reading skills formation. These skills are significant in real communication and in training activities (both in native and foreign languages). The writing that has been selected for purposeful reading skills formation is popular in Russia as well as abroad. Moreover it is a part of the world literature gold reserves. By the end of the course learners will be able 1) to analyze a writing from the point of view of the author’s communicative idea; 2) to comment on the text considering the provided communicative task; 3) to interpret a writing defining meaningful and linguistic units that serve as a basis of the writer’s idea development; 4) to predict the content of the text basing on the content analysis; 5) to construct their own judgement; 6) to introspect on the author’s images, means, communicative idea; 7) evaluate their own speech utterance as a result of the introspection on the text; 8) to compare the text of the writing considering the objective. Needed Learner Background: - basic knowledge of Russian literature (equivalent to the secondary education in Russia), - level of competency in Russian – B2 – C2 (for foreign learners), - the novel 'The Master and Margarita’ by Mikhail Bulgakov read in advance (foreign learners may read the translation into their native language).Commitment: 6 недель исследования, 1-3 часов / неделю

Cálculo Diferencial e Integral unidos por el Teorema Fundamental del Cálculo
Tecnológico de Monterrey
Los cursos de Cálculo Diferencial y Cálculo Integral tradicionalmente se ofrecen separados y respetando ese orden. El primero estudia la derivada, y el segundo, la integral, siendo este momento en el que aparece el Teorema Fundamental del Cálculo (TFC) para establecer la relación entre ambos conceptos. En el presente curso vamos a hacer una diferencia: introduciremos la derivada y la integral como conceptos relacionados desde un principio. Vamos a iniciar con la interpretación del Teorema Fundamental del Cálculo, con esto nos referimos a descubrir su significado real en la solución de problemas. Llegaremos a asociar con él la actividad práctica de calcular el valor de una magnitud que está cambiando. Habiendo realizado esta interpretación, los conceptos de derivada e integral se verán relacionados desde un principio, lo que te permitirá predecir el valor de una magnitud que está cambiando. Las nociones fundamentales de derivada e integral las identificaremos con las ideas de “razón de cambio” y de “acumulación del cambio”, y el TFC nos proveerá de la estrategia de solución. Recordarás que la Matemática Elemental incluye el Álgebra, la Geometría y la Geometría Analítica. Podemos decir que éstas son Matemáticas que estudian lo estático. En cambio, la Matemática Superior, que incluye el Cálculo, estudia lo dinámico. Con el Cálculo se inicia el estudio del cambio, una realidad presente en nuestro entorno cotidiano sin duda alguna. Costos, temperaturas, poblaciones, velocidades, energías, capitales de inversión, longitudes, etc., son algunos ejemplos de esto. En este curso podrás entender al Cálculo como una estrategia de solución para el estudio del cambio y diferenciarlo de las Matemáticas Elementales, aunque utilice de ellas bastante información. Al finalizar este curso podrás: Describir de qué manera los modelos matemáticos polinomial, exponencial natural, y trigonométricos (seno y coseno), son una construcción que responde a esta práctica de predicción. Los verás a todos ellos surgir de esta práctica cuando una magnitud real particular cumple ciertas condiciones en su “razón de cambio” con respecto a la magnitud de la que depende. Utilizar la introducción de procesos infinitos (¡no imposibles!) en la construcción de la respuesta de predicción, con ello entenderás por qué se habla de Matemática Superior y de un pensamiento matemático avanzado. Valorar una forma de pensar diferente, donde nuestro razonamiento matemático trascienda la sola manipulación de fórmulas algebraicas.Commitment: 11 semanas de estudio, 2-3 horas/semana
