Removing the Barriers for Students with Disabilities: Accessible Online and Web-Enhanced Courses
Tandy, Cindy; Meacham, Mike
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v29 n3 p313-328 2009
The concern of this article is the difficulties faced by disabled students as technology grows and expands in academia. Although distance learning, web-based courses, and hybrid courses, among other venues, have improved the chances for many people suffering disabilities for obtaining degrees and thereby increasing their life chances, we have met new challenges as well. This work will consider the growth of these technologies and some of the difficulties they present to particular groups of students. Also, the article will explore methods of overcoming many of these problems. Finally, a general method of working with these students and their special needs is drawn from existing literature.
