14 Days to Go, Let's Make This Happen!
Thanks to the combined support of all of you!
We are stunned by your generous support and enthusiasm and are eternally thankful to everybody who has pledged on the Kickstarter Campaign.
There are still 14 days left in this pledging round. Meaning 14 days left to join us in seeing how far we can push this project. 14 days left to get an hour with Jeffrey Zeldman. 14 days left to get in the beta test round of the modules! All money raised goes towards writing, developing and producing the courses. If you are wondering about whether to join in or not, please do!
Our goal is to create teaching modules that will be made affordable, highly interactive, and effective in raising awareness and skills for web developers to integrate accessibility into their development and design life cycles. We will maintain the highest level of accessibility in the delivery of the modules, of course. Our matching contributors are interested in commissioning this series of training modules but want some assurance that the effort is widely supported. They want to have confidence that online training such as ours will be be of importance and value to the community.
By contributing, you take an active part in the development process and help define the trajectory of important projects such as ours. And If we reach our goal, your contribution is matched and we make the module available FOR FREE to K-12 students and teachers!
Do you have a story like Jeanine or Desiree or Martin to tell? It will humanize our mission and help people understand why we need their support. You can post it on the comments of the front page of the campaign (the best option) or send it to me and I will work it into an update. You have to contribute to post, so if you haven’t here’s your chance to be heard.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Bill, Sharron, Denis, Elle, Rich and the Knowbility team
