Increasingly, education, learning and training at all levels, from school work to workplace training and higher education, makes use of digital technologies such as electronic text-books, websites and e-learning modules as part of the course materials. This raises important accessibility issues, which become issues of access to learning itself by people with disabilities.
In this workshop our speakers will look at some case studies in this area, including the development of accessible e-learning software and the development of 'e-portfolios' for learners with special needs, and discuss the general issues raised and the implications for learners of all ages.
