E-YES project aims at reducing the ”digital divide”, between European citizens who can benefit from IT technologies (applied to education), and European citizens who cannot access the same technologies because of their disability. Specifically, the project aims at innovating national vocational training systems and practices addressed to VIPs.
In order to achieve this objective, the partners will:
- identify training and accessibility needs of visually impaired people in order to define the didactic methodology to be used for developing the new tools
- develop two tools especially designed for VIPs: the ”E-YES Platform”, which is a software system for administering and providing online courses and the ”E-YES Course Builder”, which is an authoring tool for creating multimedia courses which are fully accessible to VIPs and can be installed within the Platform and provided online to remotely located VIP learners
- distribute the results on a European level, raising the awareness about the needs of this group of citizens, and promoting the diffusion of e-learning among visually impaired people.
