This accessibility statement applies to ‘Leading knowledge exchange at UCL’ a series of online learning modules for UCL staff built in Articulate Rise.
The course provides a short introduction to knowledge exchange primarily aimed at academic managers and leaders whose teams are involved in (or are contemplating) knowledge exchange with non-academic partners.
This statement only applies to the training itself, not the broader platform/website it is hosted on (LearnUpon).
‘Leading knowledge exchange at UCL’ is provided by a third party (Myko Creative) which means that some aspects of its accessibility are outside of our immediate control. This training is run by UCL Innovation & Enterprise.
This training will allow you to:
- Zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
- Navigate the website using the keyboard
- Understand images with alt text
- Engage with interactive content with keyboard, screen readers
- View captions on videos and download video transcripts
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We formally test the accessibility of key user journeys that represent the breadth of content across our website on a regular basis against WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.1 AA standards.
We're always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we're not meeting accessibility requirements, please contact us.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Technical information about this website's accessibility
University College London is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Myko Creative has identified the following areas of the website that are non-compliant with the regulations and are not otherwise covered by exemptions.
Throughout the training, the ‘continue’ button is hidden after it has been selected, but not the instruction text that accompanies it, therefore functionality is not affected.
On the course homepage the ‘start course’ button does not have focus visibility when accessed using the keyboard. This fails WCAG 2.4.7 Focus Visibility.
If you find an issue that we have yet to identify, please contact us using one of the routes described in the ‘Reporting accessibility problems with this website’ section of this statement.
At this time, we have not made any disproportionate burden claims.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Our websites contain third-party content. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we make best endeavours to work with the third-party to improve its accessibility. This may include:
- links to non-UCL websites
- content/functionality on our website
- content hosted on other websites, such as social media sites.
To help accessibility compliance across the sector, University College London supports searchBOX , a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information.
searchBOX catalogues the contact information and accessibility statements of third-party suppliers, enables the sharing of community-generated accessibility statements, and allows users to map their supplier ecosystem.
Users can access third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX Finder service.
University College London encourages all our partners and suppliers to support this effort by ensuring that their accessibility information is included in the searchBOX directory.
Our testing processes
We tested the website using a combination of manual and automated. If you find an issue we have not yet identified, you can report it to us. We’ll pass this information to the website owner who will review the issue, make sure it is included in our plan to fix issues and add it into the accessibility statement when it is next updated.
