The project touristic! aims to find new and innovative answers to all challenges by upskilling disabled people in Digital Skills applied to the design of innovative commercial services and products in Online Accessible Tourism, creating new skills pathways and labour opportunities for disabled people in Europe, supporting ICT-based teaching and assessment practices and promoting the transparency, validation and recognition of skills and competences acquired through OER.
As part of the ongoing Touristic project, work is ongoing into the development of O3 – a “practical and innovative ICT-based tool designed to support upskilling disabled people in Digital Skills applied to the design of innovative commercial services and products in Online Accessible Tourism,”
With the ongoing development of IO3 – the assessment and support web app – by INQS and the initial beta piloting of same, the process is always improving and we are happy to report that the results of the beta pilot are very positive. Participants who tested the system (and then filled in an online form) reported high satisfaction with the web app across all evaluated elements. Some examples of same are offered below:
Qualitative findings were – broadly:
- Feedback on the approach and concept (and project in general) was positive
- Generally identified as user friendly
- Content and materials received positive feedback
- Continue with approach, no major adjustments
- Some technical issues re bugs, etc
- Noted that additional information at the start to help onboard users would be beneficial.
- Better information when users enter the system
- Elaborate help and support area
We are delighted with the positive feedback and intend to continue working on the app ot ensure it is of the highest quality before the end of the project.
The web app can be accessed at https://touristicwebapp.eu/ and is designed to be simple, with a focus on a specific purpose which allows the user to identify and access just the relevant information they want on-demand.
