Content Standards

Subject Matter

Content should align with the theme and aim of the Austere Learning Hub, which is to become the leading community and education platform for people working in, or undertaking adventure in, remote, difficult and complex environments, to become safer, more effective and achieve their mission.

Put simply, the material on the Austere Learning Hub must be applicable to people in remote, difficult, or complex environments, and focus on helping people be safer and/or more effective.





Age Appropriateness

Content must not include words, language, image, videos or themes that would be considered inappropriate for high school students. If you consider your content is to be hypothetically rated by television raters, then PG15+ is the absolute maximum rating that your content should be rated. If there is any doubt, please ask before publishing.


Accessibility refers to making your content usable to people of all abilities and disabilities.

  1. Images must have an alternate description so screen readers can assist visually impaired people to understand the image.
  2. Slides and other content must have a clear contrast, e.g. this is good contrast and this is poor contrast
