Aim of the project
The general aim of the project was to improve the access for visusally impaired people to E-Learning services. To achieve this aim, it was intended to develop a network for e-tutors which will pay special attention to the needs of learners with visual impairments.
The key-product is a blended learning course for E-Learning coaches and an optional final online- examination, which is carried out by the Royal National College for the blind in Hereford, UK.
The general idea of this project was to establish a virtual network, where E-Learning coaches have the opportunity to exchange experiences and accessible learning materials.
Therefore the following products were developed during the project:
- A blended-learning course with a volume of about 100 hours as well as a final examination and certification
- Accessible virtual learning environment
- SCORM compatible WBT/CBT and tutorials with explanatory texts and graphical elements, questions and test features
- A multimedia CD with all WBT/CBT and learning materials.
This project was co-financed by the LEONARDO DA VINCI action programme of the EUROPEAN COMMISSION
