Twenty four students representing the graduating batch and 22 second year class participated in the yearly seminar-workshop on Web Accessibility held last April 2 and 3 conducted by Sir Jojo I. Esposa Jr. and Sir Ervin R. Reyes at MCCID Lecture Hall.

The students will then use the lessons they acquired for the web sites that they will create this summer. They are already scheduled to design working websites for six non-government institutions and two e-commerce sites of deaf entrepreneurs.

Then last April 14, the graduating class presented their finished work to the officials and staff of National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA formerly NCWDP) led by Deputy Executive Director Mateo Lee and Technical Cooperation Center Chief Ms. Nelia De Jesus. Certificates were given to the successful participants with no less than NCDA Chairperson Mrs. Rosie Lovely Romulo attached her signature. She also paid for the snacks for all the students and NCDA staff.

After learning from the seminar-workshop attended by MCCID in 2004 at Tagaytay City, the school incorporated web accessibility on the www.mccid.edu.ph and at the same time include accessibility features in the websites that they will create for free to their selected institutions. The book “Basic Web Accessibility Guide for Filipinos” authored by Sir Jojo was the main resource material used. Selected websites that passed the evaluation of Philippine Web Accessibility Group were also presented as samples.
