I work within the Higher Education Sector for Sitemorse. The Sitemorse INDEX has provided an independent standard for benchmarking digital compliance since 2002. From its inception, the INDEX has been the fundamental measure of capability for organisations that strive for digital excellence.
Each quarter, the INDEX (UK Higher Education) completes some 270 million tests/checks and measures run on public pages. These include searching for broken links; running WCAG 2.x accessibility auditing; testing HTML code; gauging site performance; ensuring content optimisation is in place for web pages and PDFs; and checking that emails are correctly formed.
I am focusing on helping the FE sector get the info they need on compliance and would like to be able to publish the Index results, articles, free online training and anything else that would be of interest to the FE sector
