W3T: The Waikato Web Team

The Web Team services the University, the Waikato Web Site, and the people who contribute to the University Web site. We provide Internet systems, administration of the current site, as well as consulting and support within the University.

Web Authors Toolkit

There are several things a Web Author needs to know before they can publish on the University Web site. The Web Authors Toolkit introduces topics ranging from Web templates to hosting conditions

Useful Utilities

If something has to be done twice or by two people, we will probably have some Useful Utilities for the job.


The World Wide Web is awash with information. The Reference section contains guidelines specific to Waikato University and reference material.


Within the Services section there is broad information about the contribution of the WebTeam to the University and a list of what we can do for you.

What's new in WCAG 2.1?

In 'What's new in WCAG 2.1?' Ricky Onsman from Intopia Digital explores the WCAG 2.1 extensions to WCAG 2.0:

"It doesn’t replace WCAG 2.0 in the way WCAG 2.0 replaced WCAG 1.0, but it extends it to cover factors affecting accessibility for some users that were not covered in 2.0.

In particular, WCAG 2.1 provides one new Guideline – Input Mechanisms – and 17 new Success Criteria to better address some of the needs of people with disabilities accessing web content on mobile devices, people with low vision, and people with cognitive or learning disabilities.  

These additional Guidelines and Success Criteria address the reality that mobile devices are not only more ubiquitous than they were when WCAG 2.0 was released, but are more complex, come with a greater range of differences from device to device, and have become more critical to negotiating daily life."
