FW: Online Courses on Accessible Web Design - Summertime Suggestions?

Looking specifically for any technical courses I can recommend to web designers, software developers, etc.

In addition to the great training and learning material such as that on Section508's https://www.section508.gov/create and https://www.section508.gov/training, and other federal sites, what would you suggest people check out (disclaimers assumed, of course) for learning about accessible web and ICT design? Of course, we promote: https://www.accessibilityonline.org/training for all their courses, including the bimonthly modules with the US Access Board. Looking to increase our knowledge base for:

1. Technical training courses or modules for web design, applications, mobile apps, etc.? (for a fee or at no-cost)
2. Training courses on user design and accessibility?
* especially modules that might provide an awareness of integrating or including persons with disabilities in user
3. Training courses or modules on disability awareness?
* Are there any "disability awareness" modules you'd recommend too? Nothing too cheesy but modules that might teach the value of accessibility features (not just Section 508 as a compliance requirement) as a value added to conforming or complying with Section 508?

Has anyone tried any of these Online Courses on Accessible Web Design? (Coursera courses are no-cost; Udemy charges)
