New look

Posted on Thursday, May 11, 2017 by James Aylett


We hope you are enjoying browsing (and studying) the workbooks in this MOOC. The programme has now been running for three years so we thought it should have a make-over.

Over the coming weeks we'll be updating some of the content and re-vamping the presentation - hopefully it will make it easier to find the information you're looking for.

The programme has been a fantastic success (we don't get too many mentions from the big UK charities though - that's another story) and has opened the door for users worldwide. Many of these countries receive little or no information regarding sight loss and the effect it has on people's lives, so we are proud that we have been able to help a little.

If you have any information that is specific to your country (perhaps strategies for cooking on an open fire) please let us know -  we may be able to incorporate it into this (or the next update). You can use the contact page on our website.

Thank you for signing up for the programme and we hope you get a chance to use the information in the way it's intended.

Course content

Posted on Friday, February 27, 2015 by James Aylett

The course content focusses on the role of the rehabilitation worker - this is a specialist professional in the UK who works with people with a visual impairment.

As you work through the course you will be aware of our accredited programme of study however, we wanted this course to be 'introductory' - to encourage people to find out more, to consider the possibilities, to better inform other professionals (Social Workers, Occupational Therapists etc.) and provide information and advice to people in countries where services are few or non-existent.

We have people sign up for the course from across the globe so we feel it is useful to connect you all and exchange knowledge. While you are studying, you might let others know if you find a particular resource(s) useful?

We'd like to see the course grow; we have already added the endorsement from the College of Occupational Therapists and included the option of earning a Certificate at the end of your studies. They'll be more and we'll keep you informed.
