Farewell to two specialist teams gone within a month. The JISC TechDis and BRITE teams

JISC TechDis which took over from DIS-in-HE and BRITE provided specialist support for the use of digital technologies and access to education across many institutions and organisations in the UK over the last 15 years.

Sadly JISC TechDis and BRITE will no longer be providing us with wonderful resources and we will need to update all our web resources. So this news comes with an apology from EmpTech if you come across broken links

From JISC TechDis

From 2 January 2015, Jisc brought its customer-facing teams, including Jisc TechDis, in house in order to provide a more joined-up, focussed service.

This means that Jisc TechDis no longer exists as a separate, distinct service providing advice and guidance on technologies to support disabled students and staff.


As of Friday 16 January 2015, BRITE will cease to exist. College Development Network will deliver the PDA in Inclusiveness from April 2015. If you have any queries about the availability of the other services previously offered by BRITE, you may find it useful to contact the organisations listed below.

It is the hope of all the BRITE staff that our paths will cross again in the future. In the meantime, we would like to wish all our followers and service users a happy, healthy, prosperous and inclusive 2015!
