Dear WebAIM list folks,

Since many people are on both the WebAIM list and WAI lists, don't usually cross-post messages from the WAI Interest Group lists (<https://www.w3.org/WAI/IG/#mailinglist>) here. However, it's been a while and we wanted to make sure that everyone gets this info about W3C WAI's Web Accessibility Introduction course.

A new online course has started and is available through April 2020:
Introduction to Web Accessibility

This course gives you a strong foundation in digital accessibility to help you make websites and apps work better for people with disabilities, meet international standards, and provide a better user experience for everyone. In addition to offering an introduction for people who are new to accessibility, this course helps people who already know about accessibility get additional perspectives.

The course is designed *for technical and non-technical* audiences.

Learn more about the course in the blog post:
Free Online Course "Introduction to Web Accessibility"

That *updated blog post provides additional information on* the:
* free Audit option (available for 4 weeks from when you enroll)
* Verified Certificate option, including dates when it is available

*We encourage you to tell others about the course and share the link to the blog post*.

We keep the WAI Announcement list (that is different from the WAI IG Discussion List) low traffic so the announcements get to you without a lot of clutter.
We encourage you to subscribe to get WAI news, since we usually don't "cross post" to the WebAIM list to avoid duplication for people on both lists.

Thanks much for any help spreading WAI News!

Best regards,
