Accessible E-Learning and Educational Technology - Extending Learning Opportunities for People with Disabilities

Abstract : The article describes possible barriers in e-learning and educational technology for people with disabilities. It starts with an overview of the different ways disabled people work with computers and assistive technology. Then several examples of creating accessible content and communication are provided. But because accessibility is not only about following technical standards and guidelines it is pointed out that accessible e-learning is more than just technology, using concepts of universal design of learning and instruction for a better e-learning experience for everybody. The article finishes with an outlook on the challenges and possibilities of an accessible e-learning 2.0.
