I found some of the questions very interesting, covered topics that have never been discussed before in training. They made me think and question myself, excellent course.

As a leading eLearning platform provider, Grey Matter Learning recognises the importance of accessibility in learning. We are proud to have integrated Recite, an innovative tool that enables learners to access eLearning content more easily, regardless of their abilities. With Recite, learners can benefit from text-to-speech in over 65 languages, colour contrast adjustments, and translation of over 100 languages, to enhance their learning experience.

These tools can help to make learning more inclusive and accessible for learners with visual or hearing impairments, as well as those who speak different languages. By incorporating Recite into our website and Click eLearning platform, we are able to provide our carers with a comprehensive and accessible training solution that helps to promote learning outcomes for all learners.
