Carin Headrick, D2L’s Accessibility team and Dr. Mahadeo Sukhai, Head of Research & Chief Accessibility Officer, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, discuss the opportunities that online learning presents in reducing barriers to education.
- Online learning provides a way to put learning in the hands of everyone, regardless of their learning accessibility
- Ensure that online learning is accessible to everyone, all stakeholders need to come to the table to create a successful experience
- Importance of teaching to the strength of our learners – a disability does not equate that a person cannot learn as all of us learn and process and communicate differently
