NTNU's Accessibility Prize 2008

NTNU's Accessibility Prize 2008

Rune Andersen, a Staff Engineer at IME and a former IDI student, won NTNU's Accessibility Prize 2008. Rune was awarded the prize for his efforts to make information on the NTNU's website accessible to all.

Rune describes himself as a nerd and web enthusiast who loves open standards, code which validates, and open source software. As part of his work at NTNU he has developed templates which makes the IME faculty web pages validate against the international accessibility standard. Rune is a valuable source of information for NTNU's webmaster forum as well as other parts of NTNU.

The prize is annually awarded by Rådet for studenter med funksjonshemming (RFSF) to a person or a community who contributes to impoving accessibility at NTNU. IDI is proud of Rune's accomplishments, and hope his quest for open standards, accessibility, and open source will inspire others to join the movement.
