  • The project team agreed on a fully hosted online solution that could be updated over time. Encouraging use of the resource was key to the success of the project. Providing a legacy for the SEP Project Designed using the Expression Engine CMS. Built in response HTML5 for use with tablets and mobile devices.
  • Making a ‘Real World’ resource It was key to involve SEP participants throughout the planning phase and in the resource itself. Assets include: • • • Myths and misconceptions discussion group 3 x Personal Impact Stories for each strand In practice scenario for each strand
  • Design Features The home page features two distinct strands on visual and deaf awareness and well as an introductory message and the logos of the organisations participating in the project. There is also the ability to resize the text and to access further information on accessibility options.
  • Design Features The Sensory Engagement Resource is responsive, making it easy to access through a variety of platforms.
  • Design Features On this page called Myths there is a video included of a group discussion with SEP participants discussing the myths concerning visual awareness that they often encounter. Within each strand of the resource we offer a range of content. All videos offer the ability to download a text transcript.
  • Design Features We are going to select visiting the Bank to take a closer look. In this section called Personal Stories the resource offers the ability to select between three sections related to Visiting the Library, Going to College and Visiting the Bank.
  • Design Features In each of the personal stories sections we have used a head to camera piece of a real person talking about their positive and negative experiences of using the service in question. In the visiting the bank section we can access Sean’s story as well as key points for the user to consider and associated resources such as documents and links that they can access for more information.
  • Design Features In this case we recorded the scenario showing John’s visit to the library and the assistance that Mary the librarian provides to him. It was important to use real people in the scenarios. In the In Practice section we can access a practical scenario that demonstrates some of the best practices when accessing a service.
  • Design Features In the resources section we can access contact details for the partner organisations as well as links to other resources and documents that would be relevant for further study and information for our target audience.
  • Design Features The options provide access to relevant Key points, Associated Resources and relevant Quicksigns. The video is showing Richard talking about his experiences in using the library This is the Personal Stories page for the Deaf Awareness section.
  • Design Features This is the Resources page for the Deaf Awareness section which also provides access to videos of quick signs for key words in British Sign Language and Irish Sign Language.
