Dear Deirdre,

thanks a lot for these resources:  Skimmed through the pages at and found them very interesting.

" anticipating and planning for the diverse needs of potential users during the design process, the resulting product or outcome will better suit the needs of all users." ( p 1).
I am not really convinced that this is true for all pedagogical settings, nevertheless the approaches and methods outlined later in detail are worth having a look at (some technical aspects would probably need an update).
