This three-year Canadian study examined the accessibility for students with disabilities of the various forms of e-Learning now used in Canadian colleges and universities. By investigating current and forecasted e-Learning trends in Canadian higher education, we:
- Identified facilitators and barriers for students with disabilities, and
- Generated and disseminated best practices for both the higher education and post-secondary e-Publishing communities.
The research involved:
- Post-secondary students with disabilities (including learning disabilities) who have used some form of e-Learning;
- Professionals who provide disability-related supports on campus;
- Individuals who lead and/or support e-Learning initiatives in their institutions;
- Faculty who have taught students with disabilities using some form of e-Learning; and
- Publishing industry executives responsible for post-secondary e-Packs and e-Courses.
